Don’t throw away your shot to see Hamilton in Austin!

An immigrant from humble beginnings, Hamilton tells the story of Alexander Hamilton’s rise in the United States and the major roles he played in developing the country. Being born in the Caribbean and orphaned in childhood, Hamilton made his way to New York City to start a better life for himself. Here, he goes to King’s College (now Columbia) and eventually becomes an aide to George Washington. Although Hamilton wanted glory on the battlefield, Washington instead convinces Hamilton to work with him; drafting letters and orders on his behalf. Later, Hamilton meets The Schuyler Sisters and falls in love with both Eliza and Angelica Schuyler. He decides to marry Eliza and they end up having several children together. Hamilton continues to work non-stop and writes The Federalist Papers as well as various amendments to the US Constitution, hoping to make the country a better place; more importantly, a fair place where his kids can grow up. Throughout his entire life, he had several ups and downs, but one thing that never changed was his unfailing conviction in making the United States a great country.

There are almost no words to describe the genius that is Lin-Manuel Miranda. It is so hard to imagine that one person single handedly, created all these songs and this entire story. It is even harder to fathom this once you know that there is little to no dialogue in this musical and it is comprised entirely of melodies and music. The set design makes a small place look enormous, and the amount of time and effort put forth into this production by the actors is tangible. Everyone knew precisely how to perform on their own, but also knew exactly how to contribute to the ensemble. The choreography also enhanced the performance, and altogether made Hamilton truly a show not to be missed!

Hamilton runs through Sunday, June 16th. To buy tickets, click here or call (800) 731-7469.

One of the biggest hits in theatrical history, CATS crawls into Austin this week. It has captivated audiences in over 30 countries performed in 15 languages over the past 40 years with the different personalities of the cats. It's now on tour across North America, but this performance is quite different. It has new choreography, sound design, and direction. I have seen CATS before and I noticed that they have LED lights on the magical cat, Mr. Mistoffelees, this time. There's a couple of string of lights that go from the stage out through Bass Concert Hall and becomes part of the performance in many ways like when one of the cats starts messing with the power.

Composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the musical follows the Jellicle tribe of cats. We are introduced to many cats such as Victoria the White Cat, Munkustrap (pictured above), Jennyanydots, Rum Tum Tugger, Grizabella, Bustopher Jones, Macavity, Mungojerrie, Rumpleteazer, Skimbleshanks, Gus, and Old Deuteronomy. Old Deuteronomy is the Jellicle patriarch. He makes an appearance to choose one of the cats to be reborn into a new life on the Heaviside Layer. He is tasked with which cat to choose every year to go to the other side. Macavity is a mischievous cat and is always committing crimes. His henchmen capture Old Deuteronomy and Macavity returns disguised as Old Deuteronomy. What mischief will ensue?

With songs like Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats, The Awefull Battle of the Pekes and the Pollicles, The Moments of Happiness, Journey to the Heaviside Layer, and the exhilarating classic, Memory, you will have a wonderful experience watching the musical.

CATS runs through Sunday, May 12th. Take your mom on Mother's Day! To buy tickets, click here or call (800) 731-7469.
