Hamilton Icons

Some icons for my current obsession, the Broadway musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Hamilton is a hip-hop musical about the USA founding father Alexander Hamilton starring an almost entirely non-white cast that is incredibly smart, funny, sincere and emotionally affecting. As [personal profile] happydork can attest, I've been listening to it non-stop for a week. It's available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Prime and iTunes, probably others also. This is a short video of some of the performance, which is also helpful for matching faces to voices.

Here are so quote icons, some icons using the artwork from the lyrics booklet, some from production stills from a range of sources.



And while I'm here, I laughed really a lot at this modern AU Hamilton fic (yes, that concept breaks my brain a bit too):

"HAMILTON> Ok just so we’re clear: G knows he can’t get his ministers in on a murder mystery, fake a murder, try to frame us for it, get someone from the UN to play along and TRY TO ARREST US, then do his shrieking dolphin laugh and tell us it was a joke. RIGHT? "

This made me laugh very very hard.

I'm so tempted by "Everything is legal in New Jersey." Soooo tempted. And the Schulyer sisters, all three.

Thank you for the video link! That was so good, but I am painfully hoping for more than just a glimpse of King George - he makes me lol so hard ;__;

Thanks for these! I can't make icons anymore and I needed some for Burr, Sir. For some reason the Burr icons are a little low out there in the world. What's up with that?
