Unless you've been living under a rock for the passed several years, you've at least heard of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and Pulitzer Prize for Drama winning musical Hamilton- An American Musical. Written by the legendary Broadway super star Lin-Manuel Miranda. Hamilton made its Broadway debut in January of 2015. The sound track for the musical is in some ways even more wide spread and acclaimed than the musical itself (Disney+ is actively changing this, with the newly released movie on the streaming service)
But you know what? The musical is great and all, but wheres the Christmas? It's not like they weren't celebrating the joyous holiday during the revolution. Let's take a look at some parodies and re-imaginings of the songs.
Eclipse 6 - Hamildolph (An American Christmas Story)
While re-imagining the classic Christmas tale of Rudolph, Eclipse 6 takes the upbeat and fast paced music from Hamilton. Swapping George Washington for Santa and Alexander Hamilton for Rudolph. We actually spoke to the group back in March of 2020 about this and many other Christmas parodies the group has created, you can read it here.)
3 Ginger Sisters - Satisfied: A Hamilton Christmas Parody
What if Angelica Schuyler was just a regular girl, who was tired of answering the same old questions from grandma, like "Are you dating anyone?" "How's school going?". This parody is a nerdy reference filled Tardis of a song.
Cole Jenkins - Green Eggs and Hamilton
My Name is Sam, Sam I Am. Do you like green eggs and ham? Have a plate.
Wexford Performing Arts - A Hamilton Christmas
Once again we find ourselves looking at the opening song, this time its by some extremely talented kids who look at Santa from the position of Hamilton.
This one isn't a parody, just a crazy light show by a Hamilton fan!
