Hamilton has traveled to the city of my birth, Denver, Colorado.
I don't know either of the gentleman who wrote letters to the Denver Post expressing their displeasure about the cast and costumes, but they sure are crabby.
"A black George Washington, a black James Madison, a black Aaron Burr, and a rapping and strutting Thomas Jefferson? Atrocious. I would love to see the reaction of our black communities if theater or film producers produced the life story of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. or Frederick Douglass and mounted an all-white cast." — Walt Bonora, Lakewood
When I noted The Denver Post's photo of "Hamilton" touring cast members Mathenee Treco, Jordan Donica, Ruben J. Carbajal and Michael Luwoye dressed as Paul Revere and Raiders, I knew I had been right not to queue for the musical. — Craig Marshall Smith, Highlands Ranch
