Hamilton was coming to Salt Lake and we had been trying to get tickets. They went on sale in February. The tickets were all sold out within the first half of the first day. We all waited in line, and no one got any.
Well, one person. My friend Devanie got a ticket, and she wasn’t even a very big fan.
It was such a TEASE.
A few weeks later, Karl found out a few more tickets were released, and he bought two! WE were SOOOOO excited.
I listened to the music NON STOP as the days got closer.
The night of the show FINALLY arrived. We got all dressed up, and were so excited.
Like SO excited.
We got to Salt Lake Eccles Theater early enough to have some dinner at the cafe there.
Also early enough to by some Hamilton merch.
(This is a hat we bought for Landy.)
AND with enough time to take some pictures.
Time to go in!
Our seats were pretty sweet.
My heart JUMPED when we finally got to the ROOM WHERE IT WOULD HAPPEN!
It was our first time at the Eccles. It was a seriously beautiful theater.
We looked through our Play Bill at our awesome cast.
The show began and it was just wonderful.
The cast was remarkable. We LOVED the actor who played Aaron Burr, Nik Walker. Jefferson/Lafayette: Kyle Scarliffe was also incredible. The Schuyler sisters were all incredible. The dancing was the best. I just loved it all.
By the time we left I had cried my make up off and was just full of happiness.
We settled in at home, and I was so excited about my new sweater.
And my new shirt.
