The Hamilton Tag (from jonasalmostfamous on youtube)

5) Favorite song to sing along with? The Schuyler sisters
6) Part you always mess up when you're singing along? "I asked about his family, did you see his answer? His hands started fidgeting, he looked askance. He's penniless and flying by the seat of his pants!"
7) Can you rap guns and ships? never tried
8) Which cast member would you most want to meet? HOW IS THAT A QUESTION?!
9) Have you seen the show? No.

Lyd's Archive (7/'15 to 6/'18) (violabelcik) | 282 comments Today.
Oddly enough, I haven't written in a journal for like five years because it's really pointless for me to write something no one will read. But now I have someone to read it.

I've been listening to sound samples of the album Visitors by Shaina Taub, a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn who played a small part in the original cast of Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 alongside Phillipa Soo, then 23 and just out of Julliard, as Natasha. Shaina's voice isn't the greatest but the music is good. I've heard she's also in the off-broadway show Old Hats.

Lyd's Archive (7/'15 to 6/'18) (violabelcik) | 282 comments All the Fandoms I will ever need (view spoiler)

Now, let me talk about the fandom you most likely don't understand....
Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 (Link goes to video).

The reason I talk about it so much is because Phillipa Soo was in it after she got out of Julliard and then it became an off-broadway hit with the theater community so Lin-Manuel Miranda saw it (I'm pretty sure he's a fan) and then the rest is history. It's also in my opinion just as good as Hamilton, but it'd a different kind of show. Hamilton is big and grand and all about here and now, but the Great Comet of 1812 is a smaller show (cast of 20, 24 musical numbers, off-broadway, smaller audience to make room for the tables on which audience members eat while watching the show, etc.) with a more intimate and timeless feel. I honestly like it more because I love Russian history and also it's more obsucure and I like obscure things.


Lyd's Archive (7/'15 to 6/'18) (violabelcik) | 282 comments I also really love the anime series ARIA which I just started watching. It's about gondoliers on a terraformed mars and their cats.

Welcome.
If you are here, either you were so good that you received a scholarship or your parents love you enough to pay a a boatload of money to go here. (Your character's parents that is). This is an exclusive dance school founded by former Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo dancer Nathalie Naryshkina Kelam. Dancers who have successfully finished studies here have moved on to companies all over the world. And your character will too. We hope.

Feel free to create a character based off any fandom or your imagination!

Hamilton Fans Unite
A gathering of Hamilton fans of varying degrees of fandom-ness.
I know this is not an original name.
Here is a group for people who like/love/worship the musical Hamilton where we can play games, chat randomly about the musical, related stuff, crossovers with other fandoms, and their other interests, and maybe meet new people. Basically all we do is talk and procrastinate and maybe spam each other
Please join!
Have fun :)

purplespacecats:

omg so y’all wanna know what pippa soo did before hamilton? a fucking electropop opera dinner theater adaptation of war & peace

so of course when lin saw it and approached her like “do you wanna be a part of this thing i’m doing? it’s a hip hop musical on the life of alexander hamilton” she was like “yes that sounds reasonable”


Lyd's Archive (7/'15 to 6/'18) (violabelcik) | 282 comments Here's a really pretty cut song from Hamilton. I think it's interesting, especially since we don't see a lot of Angelica in act two https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buDSH...


Lyd's Archive (7/'15 to 6/'18) (violabelcik) | 282 comments I was just watching this pretty video of Phillipa Soo singing Copland and someone said that she should be Christine (in Phantom of the Opera) and the funny thing is back in the days when she was a 23-year old in the off-Broadway show Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, someone commented on the video of her singing at the show's CD launch at Barnes and Noble in New York (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVXei...) that she should be an Eponine alternate, but then - guess what - she ended up in Hamilton and the rest is history.

I'm listening to this other cut song and I think it's the original version of the duel and I'm realizing that the sound you hear when he aims his pistol at the sky is similar to the noise that happens when Dolokhov's shot misses Pierre in the first act of the Great Comet of 1812.

His wife's name is Eliza and he's a genius who's already written two and a half-some other shows since Great Comet premiered off-broadway in 2012
Why to do you write like you're running out of time?

Lyd's Archive (7/'15 to 6/'18) (violabelcik) | 282 comments Today's entry is dedicated to three of the most awesome people I haven't but would like to meet....
Shaina Taub (Old Hats), Dave Malloy (Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812), and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton)!

Here are three amazing songs they wrote, all performed by Phillipa Soo
Room (Shaina) ~ No One Else (Dave) ~ Burn (Lin-Manuel)


Some of their great quotes/tweets:

"Someone told me today that potato chips are good for your voice and I'm now going to hold this as an absolute truth for as long as I live."
-Shaina


-Dave

"*Lady rolls down her car window at 181st street*
"congrats on HAMLET!"
Me: "I WISH I wrote Hamlet!" Lady:
"Yay HAMLET!" *drives away*"
- Lin

Here are some songs they wrote and performed
"O Luck Outrageous" (Shaina) ~ "Prologue" (Dave) ~ "In the Heights" (Lin-Manuel)

Lyd's Archive (7/'15 to 6/'18) (violabelcik) | 282 comments So now there is a clip of rehearsals for Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812's broadway debut, featuring Josh Groban and Denee Benton in the title roles.
http://a-good-friday.tumblr.com/post/...
Since the show itself will not start until November, I can predict there will be a cast album by perhaps next spring or summer.

So since I'm not in the Room where it Happens, I'll have to be satisfied with this thirty-second clip and a video of the man will play Pierre singing Donald Trump tweets.

I was image-searching this morning when I found this https://vimeo.com/171723124 and now I'm really interested in Shaina Taub (as if being in a picture with Dave Malloy and Lin-Manuel Miranda wasn't enough to make me interested)
