Who would spend dime on that?

The idea was they would cash in on the wild success of “Hamilton” and the supposed bonanza of pride month by smashing them together.

Turns out the wild success of Hamilton was limited to what a small theater could hold and promoting pride month is a loser for business outside of the Castro district of SF and other homo areas. The other 99.9999999% of America sees a pride flag and looks for a different place to do business.

Honestly, I heard about 1 minute of Hamilton and developed acute ear cancer. Miranda’s idea of “rap” is slightly less accurate than Warren Beatty’s in Bullworth. Completely wack, and this is coming from someone who does actually like rap.

I listened to a podcast a few years ago and the podcaster, a minor celebrity actress (Casey Wilson), was making fun of Hamilton because she and her husband had just seen it and thought it was completely ridiculous. She said she couldn't stop laughing at it, it was so bad. She couldn't understand how it had gotten so many raves.

The woke mob came for because of that and she had to issue a public apology on her own podcast for her own opinion and say she was wrong the next week. I stopped listening after that because she had no backbone or courage.

Hamilton is a great example of how the left uses social media to hype and astroturfs subjects they want to promote.

On its own it's laughably bad and theres no two ways about it, but there are plenty of people on social media that were (and still are) willing to amplify the hype because it makes them feel important to be in on something the perceive as "major".

What is so stunning about what they pulled off with Hamilton is how effective the hype is at making YOU think you're crazy. You MUST be crazy, right? You heard a little of the musical and it sounded like a bad joke. No, no.. it can't be THIS popular. YOU must be crazy for hearing it and laughing at how bad it is.

You just have to admit you see five lights. That's all there is to it.

You've explain that so well.

It's really pathetic. I know people that have spent thousands on tickets to it. I guess they're too invested to admit it sucked.

It's sad when people don't believe their own eyes and ears and the opinions of others matter more to them than what they actually feel and think. That's why we're in the mess we're in today, I suppose.
