the fact that hamilton, which is arguably one of the biggest pieces of media in the past decade, is getting a professional release is a big deal. this is a huge step for making theatre more accessible for everyone.
like, for $10 (the average price of a movie ticket) you could watch the proshot of hamilton, with the original broadway cast. you could see the original broadway cast of hamilton for $10 dollars. you’re literally paying a hamilton to see hamilton. and you don’t need to worry about sitting in a rear mezzanine seat or having an obstructed view, since it’s a proshot.
and, since disney is producing it, they’ll most likely release it on DVD or on disney+ in the future. this is a huge step forward in making accessible theatre. you could watch hamilton multiple times a week (or multiple times a day!) for a low price.
