Watch ‘Hamilton’ From the Comfort of Your Living Room Starting July 3

One of the most popular and critically acclaimed Broadway musicals of the last decade will be available for home streaming this Friday, just in time for the holiday weekend! We’re talking of course about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award winning show Hamilton. The film version of the musical featuring the original Broadway cast will be available to stream on Disney Plus on July 3rd.

The movie was originally scheduled to hit movie theaters in October 2021. But with Broadway being shut down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Disney decided to make it available on its subscription streaming service a lot sooner.

The only catch, of course, is that you will need to have a Disney Plus subscription to watch. Unfortunately there is no longer a free trial offer available, but with a monthly cost of $6.99, you can always cancel after one month and it will still cost a lot less than flying out to New York and buying a ticket to the live show. Since we won’t be able to see a live show on Broadway for a while now, hopefully this will help all you Hamilton fans get your fix.

5 Questions with Terri Cunningham

In this week’s 5 questions, we spoke with Strauss veteran actor and director Terri Cunningham.

1.  What first drew you to the theatre?

I was on the junior high forensics team and got to watch play reading and play acting categories and was fascinated.  From that moment on, I knew what I wanted to do.

2. What type of theatre are you drawn to?

I wanted to do serious drama, but my professor kept nudging me towards comedies and musicals, and I found that I really loved that genre.  

3. What is your favorite show?

Favorite show I’ve been in: Company. Love the show and Stephen Sondheim. Favorite show I’ve seen: Well, the one I will always remember is Strauss’ version of GodspellHamilton and Something Rotten are close.

4.  Why Strauss?

I met Chris Ringham shortly after moving the Monroe and he reeled me in and gave me a purpose. I’ll always be grateful to him.  

5.  What’s the most absurd thing you’ve seen on stage?

Well, me. During a college production of A Little Night Music, I was accidentally left on stage (but behind a small partition) naked. No nightgown, just a robe sitting on the bed and open to the waist. So my stage hubby handed the robe to me and I sang an entire song while holding my robe closed at the chest. Always check your props, people!
