For those of you wanting more takes on Crimson Peak, may I offer two favorable and lovely reviews, one is from local horror notable [livejournal.com profile] orrin and the other is from [livejournal.com profile] beren_writes.

And here's something for all my friends who I know want another Joss Whedon smackdown critique.

[livejournal.com profile] mckitterick bravely listened to Act 2 of Hamilton with me last night. About a third of the way through he asked "is this just a continuing trainwreck until the end?" and I said yeah, pretty much but he kept listening and agreed that even though it's sad it's also very very good.

I'm not going to say I looked up if orchestra pit seats are still available during our Spring Break but orchestra pit seats are totally still available during our Spring Break. Not cheap. BUT AVAILABLE.

Can we talk for a moment ([livejournal.com profile] curieuse, I'm looking at you) about the stylistic differences between King George's song (click the play option at the top) and the rest of the score and how that corresponds to the completely-different-from-everything-else tone of King Herod's song in Jesus Christ Superstar and how might that be intentionally referential? I hope so. I know LMM is a huge musical theater nerd I really want this not to be coincidence.

ETA: found on the toast, this Hamilton analysis/review from Talib Kweli.

I actually, literally, honestly, started crying at my desk.

[livejournal.com profile] mckitterick totally wins Best Partner Ever forever.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will be ill the day of our performance.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will step down before we go.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will die before we go.

[livejournal.com profile] mckitterick will die before we go.

I will die before we go.

Our plane to New York will crash (it can crash on our way home, whatever).

There is a rule about Broadway Wednesday matinees that only the understudies perform for those.

The Rodgers Theater will burn down the week before.

We'll get lost on the way to the theater.

We'll be murdered on the way to the theater.

We'll forget our tickets at home.

Our tickets will be lost in a house fire a week before the show.

I'm sure I'll be adding to the list as the day progresses.
