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.

As you all are probably aware by now, Broadway is on hiatus for the time-being based on the effects of the still in progress Coronavirus Pandemic. Recent reports say that its likely not to return until Winter when the year turns over but some even have pushed this as far as Spring 2021. One of the hottest plays currently on the stage is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton”. The play has been a blockbuster since opening and has won “11” Tony Awards. It was set to open in theaters everywhere sometime in 2021 but with the virus causing so many shows and events to be cancelled or postponed until indeterminate dates, the decision was made to stream this on Disney+ beginning on July 3rd. The trailer was recently released so let’s check that out along with the premise, casting and the official poster.
