The musical Hamilton follows the remarkable life story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Its creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, makes history relevant and exciting by using rap music and lyrics that resonates with today’s audience.
Hamilton opening on London in December 2017 and it’s still selling out on Broadway.
The evangelical Door Church in McAllen, Texas, mounted an illegal production of Hamilton, the pastor Roman Gutierrez claimed that their production was sanctioned and licensed by the Hamilton team.
What could possibly go wrong, right?
First of all, Lin-Manuel Miranda did not give the church the license or his blessing to mount their own production. The pastor, like his Lord and Savior Donald Trump, is a lying piece of shit.
The church’s blasphemous production removes explicit language and references to sex and replaces it with dialogue about how great and marvelous Jesus is, and how awful and sinful gays are.
I hope this god-awful church doesn’t perform Hamlet. In their telling Hamlet sees the Holy Ghost, and He commands him to stop dithering. To be or not to be? Of course, he should be a born-again Christian.
