I knew it the minute I pictured a tricorn hat with antennae that the 2016 Bee Dance had to be Hamilton-themed. Not only is Hamilton my favorite musical soundtrack of all time (and no, I haven’t seen the actual stage show), but it just so happens that my girl was slightly obsessed with it as well.
Because it’s only going to get harder to top this thing every year, I thought it best to invite someone else into the room where it happens.
For those of you who are Hamilton fans, you’re going to like this.
Even if you’re not, you’ll still get to see a mother-daughter joint production that neither of us will ever forget.
I mean, the internet’s forever.
I can’t stress enough what a magical piece of art this soundtrack is. If you don’t know it, check it out.
Seriously. How lucky we are to bee alive right now, indeed.
Enjoy! And Lin-Manuel Miranda and the entire cast, thank you for this gift of art that is truly for the ages.
Note: watch it here or just click on the “2016 Bee Dance” title in the upper left to view on YouTube, and use the theater mode. I mean, you know, it’ll bee worth it.
Also: Happy Hamilween, y’all.
