#330 – Movin’ Out (feat. Lindsay Northen)

Scanning the pages of Broadway ensemblists on social media, its hard not to take stock of the number of performers who are moving out of New York City. While some of these moves are temporary and others seem more permanent, what I’m struck by is the fact out performing artists have a reason or means to stay in one of the most expensive cities in the country.

No matter if watching the filmed performance of Hamilton on Disney+ is your first time viewing or your tenth, one thing is clear when watching: this is a very good show. Numbers like “Schuyler Sisters” and “The Election of 1800” not only tell story and develop character, they are also thrilling to watch. On stage and on screen, Hamilton is chockablock with good musical theatre moments. And as will be a surprise to no one, those thrilling moments of stagecraft are due in part to the show’s ensemble.
