“Hamilton,” December 20, 2021 (2020), Disney Channel. Regardless of where one stands in the Jefferson-Hamilton debates, and regardless of the simplifications of the issues, it’s impossible not to marvel at this Broadway show filmed over four performances. Lin Manuel Miranda stars in this 2016 version along with a brilliant diverse cast (mostly People of Color) presenting and reinterpreting the namesake’s life and times. There are moments when it’s almost reverse minstrelsy, as with Daveed Digg’s Jefferson, but the whole cast, from Lamar Otis, Jr. as Burr, Philippa Soo as Eliza (his wife), Chris Jackson as Washington, and Jonathon Groff as a camped-out and over the top George III are great. The rap about this immigrant makes good in America is all filtered through Ron Chernow’s bio and is heavier on antiracist tendencies and lighter on elitist antidemocratic vibes than I’d like, but its truly a pleasure. I used his spectacular songs about the Cabinet meeting poetry slam between AH and TJ along with “In the Room Where It Happens” in my economic history classes and they work beautifully, although Hamilton’s stage line “but we get the bank” is more accentuated in the cast album than this show. To say the least, we enjoyed this Lin Manuel Miranda show that transformed history into accessible, meaningful art. 2020-2021 may have been a mess of a year, but it was his year.
