If you can’t get tickets, rock out to Hamilton's music and The Hamilton Mixtape
But if you don’t have thousands of dollars to squander on Hamilton tickets, nor the time or patience to play the highly unreliable ticket lottery game, do you have to just settle for the Hamilton original Broadway cast soundtrack and an epic case of FOMO? No, you do not. You can do better.
An outstandingly awesome musical concoction called The Hamilton Mixtape was just released and immediately debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. To say that The Hamilton Mixtape is star-studded is a historical understatement. It features Usher, Alicia Keys, The Roots, Wiz Khalifa, Sia, Chance the Rapper, John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Aloe Blacc, and many others in a track-by-track celebrity reinterpretation and remix of the Hamilton soundtrack. Heck, even Jimmy Fallon makes an appearance on this mix.
So whether or not you are able to score that highly coveted Hamilton ticket, you can at least hold these truths to be self-evident -- the Hamilton soundtrack can introduce you to this musical’s magnificent lyrics and tunes, Hamilton Mixtape can rock your world with bigger stars than the touring production will have, and you can always just curl up with Ron Chernow’s book Alexander Hamilton on which this musical is based while you wait for them to eventually make Hamilton into a movie.
