The annual tradition of the hot dog eating content that is a staple of the Coney Island Nathan’s and the Fourth Of July was going to be a different experience entirely this year based on the Coronavirus Pandemic. Sure some places have re-opened to outside dining and some shopping but an event like this one draws in thousands as they watch their favorite eater consume the amazing hot dogs. Before the virus hit, I had hoped to be on the press line snapping photos since I’ve been doing so much lifestyle stuff here on “The Chronicles” but based on the world of now it was not going to be possible.

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.
