How lucky we are to be alive right now! It’s a bit strange to share a fandom with people I know as non-fans. Like, I met a colleague’s husband and she mentioned/complained how he played the soundtrack incessantly on the weekends, and we recognized each other as similar souls! (I can only assume that she just wasn’t hearing it during the week, when he played it at work.) On the other hand, I nearly got into a screaming fight with another colleague about whether the genius of the musical depends on its transformativeness or is independent of that transformativeness (both at the level of Founding history and rap music)—the answer is the former, of course, but the discussion got a bit heated. So weird!  Also I am about to go see Hamilton--tomorrow night, yay!--and I am so excited I could burst.
