“I am loath to tell people to mortgage their houses and lease their children to acquire tickets to a hit Broadway show.

“Like any true landmark, ‘Hamilton’ stands up to repeated viewings. After six months, the show’s initial impact hasn’t dulled a bit; in fact, the qualities that made it so extraordinary the first time around are all the more striking.”
