Hi Jeff! I'm with you about the music ... when Phil and Scott talk about that, I listen and gobble up their insights. I like the High Art comparison ... saw it long ago, keep thinking to revisit it. The Yellow Wallpaper is another good call. As for the veracity of the biographical angle in the movie, I liked that most of it was made up.

You raise a good point. Hamilton has resonance today precisely because it is Hamilton. But it wouldn't be "Hamilton" if it came out now, and that might make a difference. Having said that, it boggles my mind that this talented fellow read a book about Alexander Hamilton and thought, "I could make a rap musical about this!"
I might never have gotten around to it, except 1) we just signed up for Disney Plus, and 2) it was Robin's turn to pick the Geezer movie, and she wanted to see it.
