If you’re a fan of musicals, history, or know someone with a Disney+ subscription, you’ve probably found yourself a little swept up in Hamilton-mania. It’s nothing to be ashamed of – we’ve been singing King George’s hilarious lines and triumphantly fist-bumping along with the Schuyler sisters for years, with no signs of stopping anytime soon. Thanks to it’s arrival on Disney’s streaming service, Hamilton has enjoyed a recent surge and added to the already massive fan base, leaving just about everyone with a Lafayette-loving revolutionary on their shopping list. Fortunately, I’m not throwing away my shot!
