Whether one liked Hamilton or not or felt neutral about it (cannot quite imagine that) I do not remember a show that set theatrical and political circles so buzzing about its merits and even its perceived flaws. Amongst its first champions were both Dick Cheney and Hillary Clinton. President Barack Obama praised it while his successor disparaged it. A visit by the then Vice President created front page news. Sidewalk shows by the star and his guests, not needed to drum up business for the already sold out show created traffic jams for over a year (and brought business to the neighborhood so complaints were few.) In my opinion it was a definite turning point in bringing younger people to the theater (that may be disputed) All of this and more made it the highest profiled show of our time. And I would say that is not amongst under 15 year olds but to those slightly older who remember the fuss when it opened and the controversies through the years.
