This song in Hamilton caught me off guard (spoilers)

So there I am watching Hamilton on Disney Plus and getting into the catchy energetic presentation and then full stop. This songs describes the aftermath of Hamilton's oldest son, Phillip. Before that, according to internet comments, his sister in law Peggy died. The Hamilton's were also dealing with the fallout of Alexander's affair with details made public.

Yes, one of the greatest Broadway songs ever.

Hamilton is amazing art. You have just stopped at one of its powerful paintings.

Thanks for posting - it was good to just listen with lyrics. Having the actors on stage was distracting from some key aspects of that song.

First watch I didn't understand a lot of the words, but then we turned on subtitles!! Agree, very powerful scene.

I wasn't interested in Hamilton but signed for Disney+ anyway and took a peek.
Took 2 scenes. I was hooked. Third time through & anxious to block out 2.5h for a fourth.
Highly recommended

This was the scene. When he took her hand. Forgiveness. Tears!

in theater this is known as the 11:00 song. the song late in the 2nd act (usually within half an hour of the end) that is a key moment for the protagonist and the absolute emotional show-stopper of the night. another example would be Send In the Clowns from "A Little Night Music."

when i first listened to the Hamilton soundtrack a few years ago and heard Quiet Uptown I went, oh, that must be the 11:00 song.

I haven't seen Hamilton (yet) but this little bit almost brought me to tears.

Hey, gl, thanks for this inside baseball bit.

I bought the soundtrack not long after the play came out. Going to see the play was one of the greatest moments of my life.

One of my absolute favorites from the show. As much as I love that song, that's how much I can't stand Send In The Clowns. Burt that's just me. ;)

Did you ever see the play? I saw it on Broadway and the structure of the story leading up to Send In The Clowns is so exquisitely crafted I broke out in tears. I was a theater major and a musical geek so that explains a lot i suppose.

No, I'll admit to never having seen the play. And I understand that that could make a huge difference. I just remember having to play Judy Collins' version of it it far too often in my younger days as a (younger) radio guy. Like fingernails on a blackboard to me at that time.
