Cynthia wrote, “It moves me to see everyone giving Hamilton its flowers. Let’s be clear, it’s more than just a great musical. Its brilliance comes from every single brilliant person involved. From the beautiful @arianadebose who plays the bullet, to the big bro @leslieodomjr as the elegant Burr, love is the energy that changed Broadway and ultimately the world. What better time to see the beauty in defiance and the impact of art on our world. Let’s celebrate all that is Hamilton.”
