Podcast: How does the traveling 'Hamilton' show compare to Broadway?

So, maybe you’re mulling over whether to invest in Hamilton tickets when the traveling show comes to a theater near you. And they ain’t cheap.

Should you splurge? Or is the national tour a watered-down experience compared to the smash Broadway original?

This week’s Straight Up Hollywood podcast answers those questions following Hamilton’s glitzy debut in Hollywood Wednesday night – and USA TODAY entertainment staffers Andrea Mandell (@AndreaMandell) and Carly Mallenbaum (@ThatGirlCarly) were there.

For added benefit, guest and resident Hamilton expert Kelly Lawler (@klawls) joins us for this special edition of SUH to weigh in on her first-hand experience at the Broadway show. If you have questions about Hamilton – or are just a die-hard fan – you won’t want to miss this one.

 

And as promised, here’s that special Los Angeles Ham4Ham we were talking about, along with a peek at Miranda jamming at the White House in 2009.
