So it’s without question that the Broadway production of “Hamilton” is a blockbuster among blockbusters and if you are someone that can get a ticket you are in a very small minority since its one of those things that is next to impossible to do. It’s also a very pricey affair when it all adds up for the night out. Now, Disney was originally planning on releasing a big screen motion picture of the play with its most famous cast at some time in 2021 but with the Coronavirus cancelling pretty much everything that people were doing the idea to broadcast this on Disney+ was determined to be the best option. The play has been a record-breaking affair since opening and has won “11” Tony Awards. If you missed our post about the trailer then just click HERE to see it and now it’s time to share that if you are a paid subscriber to Disney+ that this film is now available to stream on the device of your choice. Let’s review the premise, casting and poster down below. I will return at the close.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I’ve already pointed out how cool that I think this is but I am not currently a subscriber to Disney+. Yes I know there is a free trial but guess what, you cannot view “Hamilton” during the free trial and have to wait until you decide to pay for it. Since I am not the biggest rap and R&B music fan I can wait on seeing this myself as I do plan on signing up for the service once the second season of “The Mandalorian” is ready to begin. What about you readers? Are you already in and ready to stream this hit show again and again and again? Will you be hosting “Hamilton” parties and encourage a few friends to come over, remain masked and socially distant but in period dress? I’d love to hear your plans for this one and now I must go since its very, very late. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time
