[SUBS] Hamilton: An American Musical @ Disney Plus

17417

“Hamilton” is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, “Hamilton” has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. Filmed at The Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016, the film transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.

A Bit More Info

Disney Plus is about to get its biggest release to date, as Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton: An American Musical lands on the streaming service Friday. His visionary take on the "ten-dollar Founding Father without a father" is a cultural phenomenon rather than just another Broadway smash …

The version available for streaming this week was filmed at New York's Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2016 and features the original cast of the show, including Miranda himself as Alexander Hamilton alongside Daveed Diggs, Phillipa Soo, and many other standout performances. Scroll down for full details of the original Hamilton cast that won 11 Tony Awards - Broadway's equivalent of the Oscars.

The film carries a PG-13 rating in the US, which is roughly equivalent to a 12A in the UK.

  • How is this a bargain?

    • Because his name is Alexander Hamilton

    • Their show in broad way is the most expensive to go to.

      Costing up to thousands of dollars to watch

    • It was scheduled to come to Australia - tickets are typically above $100. Considering COVID means that many of us who wish to watch this show may never get a chance to watch it at all now, to be able to watch the original cast Hamilton show at home for $8.99 (or free with woolworths rewards) sure looks like a bargain for us. Although clearly not for you.

      But this could be said for all bargains, couldn't it? Many deals are bargains for some and not for you, because it is not what you are seeking.

      • It’s planned to be coming to Sydney in March 2021.

        • Yeah that won’t happen

        • I don't know about others - I am sure quite a few people, including myself, will have reservations about going to a theatre, perhaps for a long time. Even if they are open, and supposedly safe. Until a vaccine is found, of course.

        • You won't get the original cast though, which for people attending shows can be a big deal.

          • @BillyG687: On the other hand, you might get John Farnham as Alexander Hamilton.

          • @BillyG687: When was the last time a Broadway show in Australia was the original cast? This argument is just absurd.

            Every single broadway show is filmed for posterity. This particular show had a pro-shot version. No different than the Rent finale recording etc.

            Broadways Shrek has an excellent filmed recording of the live cast but that didn’t stop people from seeing it when it was here just a few months ago.

            Fans of musicals have always enjoyed filmed musicals as well as seeing shows live. We waited years for Book of Mormon and I’m sure that even with delays due to COVID, we will eventually get to see Hamilton here.

            They are even doing a drive in version of Six. Theatre is going to be different for a while but theatre is not dead. OG cast doesn’t mean that much, it’s why shows on Broadway and the West End go on for years. The OG cast win the awards and are on the recordings but that’s about it. Theatre lives on.

        Nah its just advertising a new show on <insert streaming service>/Gaming platform> which still requires a subscription.

        2 weeks free disney+, now that was a bargain!

      • Tickets typically over $100? Dude, a standard show these days is over $100. Hamilton tickets start at several hundred when converted to AUD, and that's provided you can actually score seats for it.

        • Yes, I was being conservative here- assuming one can wait till there are late-season offers, like those posted on OzB and elsewhere in the past.

    • Because it’s HAMILTON!!!. It’s one of the best modern day musicals ever if you are in the know about musicals!

    • It's one of the biggest musicals/streaming releases of our lifetime, how is it not a deal?

  • I mean, I’m all for notifications when big games get added to game pass like subscriptions. But the addition of one movie or doco or whatever to a video streaming platform?

    Seems like a reach. Netflix would add multiple titles daily

    • To be fair, this is like having GTA 6 being announced for Gamepass. Hamilton is regarded as one of the best shows to be on Broadway. Having an original cast recording released is a pretty big deal.

    • I mean, I’m all for notifications when big games get added to game pass like subscriptions. But the addition of one movie or doco or whatever to a video streaming platform?

      You're argument doesn't make sense, you're basically saying that only deals you approve of should be posted.

      I'm not interested in either games or musicals so should I argue against both being posted?

      • Maybe a couple of games a month get added to subscription services. There are probably hundreds of movies and tv shows added to streaming services A DAY. So where do you draw the line?

  • I'm not into recordings of this kind if rubbish, generally. But this is a most excellent find.

  • Is this a political post?

  • yes it's worth a post.
    Thanks for letting us know.

  • I was lucky enough to see this twice in New York and in Chicago. I thoroughly enjoy the show and have listened to the soundtrack enough times to know all of the words. But as a bargain, sorry no.

    This filmed version was always going to be released at some point, whether in theatres or like this.

    Simply being made available on a streaming platform, does not a bargain make.

    • I disagree. I personally think that having access to something you otherwise would not is the best kind of bargain. 💐

    • I was lucky enough to see this twice in New York and in Chicago
      This filmed version was always going to be released at some point, whether in theatres or like this.

      You just nail it - "at some point" is way lower utility than "at this point".
      By your own account, you were lucky enough to see it twice, so of course your valuation of this access has dropped.
      Spare a thought for some of us who are going to miss it (due to COVID). Hence why this is valued highly and provides some compensation.

    • How much did it cost to fly to NYC and get tickets to watch the show? Assuming it was less than this subscription

  • I'm not into recordings of this kind if rubbish, generally. But this is a most excellent find.

  • Good Omens is free on Amazon Prime too. Great deal if you have Prime because it comes free with your subscription too… :-|

    NotADeal

    • I understand a monthly update per subscription, but an individual post per new item added to a subscription service seems unnecessary.

  • A new title added to a subscription service is not a deal, the subscription service ITSELF can be considered a deal though. This is a PSA more than anything.

    • I added this as a $8.99 find, or free with Woolworths Rewards. The fact that it happens to be a subscription platform was coincidental. A moderator changed the deal title, which is completely understandable and makes sense too.

      BTW I did not neg you.

  • I'm torn between watching this before I've seen it live on stage (yes I realise this will be better).

    • Honestly, whilst this will be an epic presentation with the original cast, and I’m so excited, watching this filmed version would be akin to listening to a cast recording before seeing a show.

      A lot of the magic of the staging, choreography, lighting and effects will be far more fantastic being in person watching this live on stage.

      Both can exist and if this encourages more people to get into the arts and live theatre, even better.

    • I decided to watch it anyway, because it's the original cast and all. If/when it comes down here it's very unlikely to be all the original cast.

  • Thanks for sharing :D Been wanting to check this out.

  • I hope people don't start adding new arrivals on Netflix as bargains referring to the 30 day trial and marking it as SUBS.

  • Plenty of free YouTube subs also available for people liking this deal.

  • How is this a deal? Its what your paying your subscription for. Are people meant to create a new post every time a new movie is added to netflix

  • Disney are scum

  • Not a bargain

  • A paid subscription isn't a bargain

  • New shows on streaming platform does not a bargain make

  • Belongs in the forums

  • Mando drops in a a few months. What's the bet someone thinks that's a deal and posts it? smh

  • So how do we post [SUBS] deals whenever there is a new movie or TV show available on VOD subscription services without the deal being removed reason being it is viewed as a joke post as has occurred previously? Why is this deal specifically okay and others not? What is the criteria?

    This is an honest question as the guidelines are not really clear and deal posters can't distinguish between what is okay to post and what isn't - or am I not up to date and there are no restrictions now? And if so won't people just spam deals on here?

    • It's usually pretty easy to tell I reckon. See a new [SUBS] post and then look at who posted it. Usually about 30 mins earlier they were having a massive Reeeeeeee on someone else's post. The description is usually dripping with sarcasm also.

  • This is advertising not a bargain.
    You can watch lots of things of Disney/Netflix/Stan.
    In the words of a certified lunatic: “any bargains?”

  • Positive purely because the dumbass Game Pass posts are upvoted.

    Can't have one rule for subs and another for others.

    • This is 100% correct… but I disagree

      • Haha yeah I don't get it man, but people upvote "deals" about games being added to a subscription service they pay for so I'ma upvote this by the same logic.

        • It’s a lot to do with the demographics of ozbargain. We have a lot of gamers here obviously.
          If I posted about a great story in a Newspaper you can subscribe to I’d be laughed outta here.
          This play is probably great but change and new ideas scare me

      When the price of individual things added to the subscription tremendously exceeds the cost of the subscription itself, that's a deal.

      Multiple $50-$100 games added to a subscription which often costs less than that for a whole year is a fantastic deal.

      A recording of a live theatre show is not even in the same ballpark. It's akin to watching someone play the games on Twitch or Mixer.

      The only way this 'deal' would be comparable is if you got tickets to actually see the live show.

      This isnt even as big a deal as a decent, theatrical movie being released on the platform. It's bottom-of-the-barrel content, at best. This belongs on YouTube.

      • This was originally going to be released in cinemas next year.
        I don't know where you go to the cinema, but I certainly can't get a movie ticket for $9 anymore.
        I have to bargain hunt to get it much under $20 a lot of the time.

    It's a no from me dawg.

    Especially as Disney dropped their free trial so you couldn't sneak in a viewing of this.

    So in essence it's the opposite of a bargain.

  • I LOVE DEMOCRACY!

    • I love the Republic. Once this crisis has abated, I will lay down the powers you have given me!

  • I +'ed this vote because I love the controversy of whether it's a bargain or not. It's the greatest gift you could've given me this lockdown Thursday night.

  • Upvoting because we should all just be positive, don’t be a downer save your hate for your Facebook feeds

    It's a bargain according to ozbargain guidelines. Wow

    • That's crazy. By that logic, people could post every single movie and tv series added to any subscription service.

      • Yep, and you can not only upvote or downvote, you can block ALL of them with a SINGLE settings change.

        What a bunch of hoo-ha over nothing.

        OzBargain still works the same: upvotes and downvotes will weed out what's actually a notable bargain from what's not. And if you don't like bargains like this, you can block them forever with a click.

      • i tried posting a new song added to youtube for free. mods removed it and banned me

  • Got charged $1 for a 14 day trial after following the Woolworths promotion, after having it for 2 days I'm already out of shows to watch with the small content that they have to offer.

  • It's not a bargain but I am really excited about Hamilfilm, knowing I will probably never see it live.

    And I didn't get the 14 day trial from Woolworths as I just joined when that was posted, so it's cost me $8.99

  • Question: Is the voice/singing actually 'live' singings from the recorded stage performance, or is it lipsing/ post-production vocals. Because the vocal performance and sound qaulity sounds soo good from the trailer and they don't even have proper mics on.

    Anyway so excited to see the film, huge fan of the musical recording!

    • Here is info I can find:

      The movie features most of the original cast and was recorded at the Richard Rodgers Theatre over three days in June 2016: two days of filming with a live audience, and one where they shot close-ups and other angles. The movie is directed by Thomas Kail, who also directed the stage version.

      Given the live audience, I am inclined to think that most of it is sung live.

  • Thanks op, my kid really wants to watch it tomorrow

  • This is the biggest neg pile-in.

    Every week the Youtube “Show Must Go On” musicals were upvoted without a single neg.

    Now we get the biggest musical of the last decade shown for free and the neggers are out in force.

    Fickle crowd Ozbargainers.

    • Subscription service forever vs temporarily free for ALL on youtube is the difference.

      • Your distinction, while theoretical, is quite meaningless as a measure of value/bargain for some of us. It stems from the reasoning that a subscription is a sunk cost, therefore, anything that comes along with it has $0 marginal cost. And hence, not a bargain.

        But this fails to acknowledge that a number of us would not have signed up, except as a once-off, to avail ourselves of this show. And by all accounts, including your own, this is a pretty impressive show.

        I discovered about this release just today on TV. All of a sudden, I was trying to find ways to watch it cheaper, if possible. Had the distribution medium been: Pay $8.99, or $0 using a WW code - to watch or rent the Blu-Ray, it would pass for a bargain. But instead, they require a subscription sign-up.

        This is a technicality. In reality, and for all practical purposes, it has not diminished the value one bit, to those like me. If anything, the value is enhanced, with all the other stuff from channel to check out.

        • "Your distinction, while theoretical, is quite meaningless as a measure of value/bargain for some of us. It stems from the reasoning that a subscription is a sunk cost, therefore, anything that comes along with it has $0 marginal cost. And hence, a bargain."

          While, I understand your opinion I remove one word in that sentence and the sentiment can be very different for others….

          I personally choose not to neg the deal as while I want to lean to a side of an argument, your point isn't invalid(plus as others have stated with game pass its still the same thing)

          It's the whole drawing the line in the sand that get people annoyed… and personal preferences :P

        • Only the streaming Hotel Quarantine Security reality show is more controversial, bluesky…
          You are a troublemaker.
