“ ‘Hamilton,’ an improbable hip-hop musical about America’s first
Treasury secretary, completed its rapturous march across America’s
awards landscape on Sunday, picking up Broadway’s highest honor: the
Tony Award for best new musical,” the New York Times reports.

Congratulations to author and star Lin-Manuel Miranda. But this is
ridiculous:

The Tony Awards, as well as CBS, which broadcast the event,
dedicated the ceremony to those affected by the [Orlando
attack]. . . . Between the time of a morning rehearsal and
the evening broadcast, “Hamilton” decided to drop the use
of muskets in its production number (“Yorktown”).

Infantilizing the infantry is a strange way of demonstrating respect
for the dead.

I'm surprised that Hamilton even had guns initially, with all the anti-gun
types in the industry.

I didn't watch the entire show, but I did see the beginning comments about
Orlando.

Those comments were just a bit offensive, as the implication was that the
tragedy would have been much less noteworthy if it had been at a straight
club.

I'd figure they'd want to ENCOURAGE the use of muskets. Hmmmmm.

Saw just a bit of the TONY show. Looked like TONY was getting back at OSCAR
by essentially having a BETony award.
