    I'm still in denial that we're saying goodbye. That said, this is one of my favorite tracks on the entire album and I'm not normally a ballad lover. But Mr. Jackson slay me every single time.

    I could listen to that man sing the phone book.
    (Same thing with Leslie Odom Jr. He makes "Good for You" sound so much better. But I'm still salty he cut "Song for the Asking" from his album after it got re-released.)

    They're starting to update the website with firm dates for the tour. There's only 5 cities so far (2 of them are LA and San Francisco, though). Looks like they'll be in each city for almost a month, with the exception of the Washington DC show.
    If I could manage to get a ticket to see the OBC, then I hope the same luck will apply to tickets for the tour...

    It's not close mileage wise (I'm in FL), BUT my sister and her family lives in NOLA so at least I would have a house to crash in. And, I'll be watching dates to see if it crashes with my nephew's graduation because I'd already be in town. Thanks for linking this!

    Hmm, kind of an interesting choice... A very different style... He's more of a traditional type of showman, and (dare I say it), slightly older than the rest of the cast. I would have seen him as Washington rather than Laf/Jef, but we'll have to wait and see.

    When Chris announced his last show, I convinced myself that James would be Washington. It's nice to see my record of predicting who'll be replacements right but missing it on which role/location they'll be at is going strong.
    James was involved in an early reading of Hamilton (Lin tweeted a link to a video of it), and he is a member of Freestyle Love Supreme, so we know he can rap. (Not tap, autocorrect. But he can do that too.) only doubt is his French accented rapping.

    I think he'd be a great Washington, but is a weird choice for Lafayette.
    He's got Washington's dignity and that classical showmanship, but I don't see that youthful, cheeky, scoundrel side.

    We have 2 tix for early April and then the whole fam is going the end of May. I wonder who will be doing Lafayette/Jefferson for that first performance, since James not slated to start until mid-April...

    Physically he reminds me much more of Chris Jackson.

    I think they'll probably extend Srth's contract, because the other guys who cover that role cover multiple roles.
