So anyone else obsessed with the musical Hamilton. I can't wait for it to come to the UK. I hope Miranda moves to Scotland for a few shows. 

 

A musical about a Scot seeking independence for his new country from Britain. Some amazing songs and full of emotion. I didn't know the full story before this musical https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamilton_(musical)

 

Some beautiful tracks and undertones of uprising. I hope similar things will be done for the future Scotland founding fathers and mothers

That's a touchingly romantic view of Hamilton's nationality :). "The bástard brat of a Scottish peddler" was John Adams' characterization. Would he even be eligible to play for the national team?

I'm sure it's a good musical, right enough ...

Edit: How prim is this swear filter?

I would have thought they would have waited for Martin Canning to be sacked

I have balloons to go with the music

It opens in London in December.  I'm seeing it on 29th January.  It's fantastic, history played out over hip hop beats.

Dad was from Ayrshire so if the basis for nationality is based on the eligibility for a football team then yep he's eligible and therefore Scottish.

I was just musing on whether illegitimacy affects eligibility, but I've just checked and it's 'biological father', and being a child-abandoning ne'er-do-well makes not a jot of difference. So, yes, according to FIFA Hamilton could get a game.

This is a "must see" for the luvvie commentators and then people jump on this hype.  About 0.1% of the population will see or care about this.  Just another overpriced show.

Unfortunately he died 70 years too early.

Saw it on 29th January.  Wow, just wow.  Everything I had hoped for after following for so long.

Saw it at start of February and wasn't expecting too much. When I was told it was a hip hop play about the Founding Fathers, my first thought was "Oh FFS," but it was excellent and far exceeded any expectations I had. The song "no-one else was in the room when it happened" is a helluva show song.
