…is not that “Hamilton” won everything. It’s that I knew “Hamilton” would win everything as soon as I learned that it was a show about white people being played by non-white people who rap.
I never heard a single song, heard nothing about it except “people seem to really love it”, but as soon as I heard the concept behind it I would have bet my laptop that it would clean up.
Ditto “Fun Home”, from last year. A show about a lesbian feminist with an abusive father? Are you kidding? Just give it the best musical award in advance and be done with it.
