Book of Mormon vs. Hamilton
There has been a heated debate at the Algonquin Round Table about the relative pluses and minuses of Book of Mormon vs. Hamilton. The Director of our Fine Arts Department was asked to moderate the final discussion session, and here is the conclusion: While there is a reasonable argument that Book of Mormon has a more original story, Hamilton wins in every other way. There is talk that a new version of Book of Mormon is being prepared where the songs will be done in hip-hop, the Mormons will be played by people of color, and the Ugandans played by people of all races. We will let you know as soon as that version comes out if the "Algonquin conclusions" might need to be revised.
