San Francisco Day Three

Saturday in San Francisco was one of the most fantastic days ever because we witnessed Hamilton with our own eyes! I (and everyone else on the planet) have been obsessed with the founding father musical since its Broadway debut and frequently annoyed my family with my constant belting of the soundtrack. When my mom purchased tickets for the Broadway tour in SF, we were all ecstatic to see Lin-Manuel’s genius through a new cast. Although I would die to see the original cast perform live, the San Francisco cast was just as phenomenal as the OGs. My favorite was Joshua Henry who played Aaron Burr (my favorite character). I’ve been a fan of his since I watched his Hamilton remixes during his tenure in the Chicago cast and was willing to travel to the windy city just to see him on stage. Luckily enough, I didn’t have to go to Illinois and instead watched him in awe at the Orpheum! The whole musical was even more incredible than I hoped and I blubbered from start to finish, amazed that I was in the presence of my favorite piece of art. All I can really say is that Hamilton is one of the few things in life that is better than one could imagine and my love for Angelica Schuyler was reawakened. We also visited our favorite farmer’s market at the ferry building and ate porchetta, bison dumplings, and peach pie before stuffing our faces with food court Asian food and Ghiradelli sundaes to end the day!
