Disney+ brings us ‘Hamilton’ (and a lot more)

Dan Webster

I haven't had any reason to sign up for extra streaming services, what with the money I already pay to my cable service (though maybe not much longer) and to the services I already subscribe to (Netflix, Amazon Prime).

Until now, that is. Because signing up for Disney+ (or Disney Plus) was the only way to see the filmed stage version of "Hamilton."

My wife and I saw the actual traveling stage play when it came to Seattle a few years ago. And even though I was sitting in a nose-bleed seat at the Paramount Theatre, I ended up loving the show.

And so we did sign up for Disney+. And apparently we weren't the only ones. (Note: $6.99 a month gets you access to just that service, $12.99 a month gets you Hulu and ESPN+ as well. As of now, no "free trial" is being offered.)

That might be a bit of an expense for some, though viewers who have small children in the house might appreciate having access to all the programming that Disney offers, from the "Star Wars" collection to Disney classic movies.

And you can cancel anytime. So if you want to finally see "Hamilton," with its original cast, now's the chance.
