HAMILTON.

Yes, I realize I'm late to the party. But holyyyyy crap is it good.

Is there, like, a new-to-the-fandom guide out there somewhere? I don't think I'm interested in fanfic, but links to great videos, parodies, remixes or whatever would be much appreciated.

Eeee! Hamilton!! Yes.

For links, the Dreamwidth comm here: http://hamiltunes.dreamwidth.org/
has a lot of links to interviews and performance etc,so is a good place to start with more recent stuff and working your way back.

Yay, thank you!! (Your Hamilton recaps make SO MUCH MORE SENSE NOW. I wish I hadn't waited so long, after listening I ran to the internet to try and get tickets, but it is literally sold out until 2017. (It's coming to Chicago as well soonish, but... not the original cast!)

Page Summary

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always—
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of things shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

--Little Gidding, T.S. Elliot
