43 Celebrities Who Are GUSHING Over "Hamilton" On Social Media

They did not throw away their shot to see this musical

Posted on

In case you've been living under a rock or in like a weird bomb bunker for the past 6 months, Hamilton is the new hip-hop musicalβ€”based on the biography of Alexander Hamiltonβ€”that is taking the New York theatre scene by storm.

The show is getting insanely positive reviews and generating crowds by the hundreds for every single performance. That all sounds fine and great, except for the fact that it would be easier to fucking meet Alexander Hamilton himself than it is to get a ticket to the show.

Alas, due to the incredibly widespread popularity of the production, Hamilton is sold out until after the new year; that is, unless you're a celebrity. That's right, for months now celebs from Amy Schumer to Barack Obama have been visiting Rodger's Theatre on Broadway to get their fix of history as told through hip-hop (as if we needed any more reason to envy Jennifer Lopez...); here's what some of them have said about the show on social media.

1. Amy Schumer

Love love loved @HamiltonMusical #greatforhiphopheads

Flawless cast and impeccable writing makes Hamilton soar.
