After presidential candidate Hillary Clinton referenced “Hamilton” in her Democratic National Convention speech, we began patiently waitin’ for the inevitable pro-Hill parody that would follow.
Today, that parody arrived.
We have the comedians at The Key of Awesome to thank for the musical homage (and a truly painful impression of Donald Trump). You had us at the “Hamilton” logo transformed into what should be the emblem on Clinton’s future oval office door, guys.
Lin-Manuel Miranda and Renée Elise Goldsberry performed their own “Hamilton” parody earlier this month during the “Broadway for Hillary” event. While nothing beats the line “Anybody here wanna shatter a glass ceiling?” ― particularly when it’s rapped by two of theater’s greatest ― we might pay the lottery discount to see “Clinton: An American Musical,” too.
