    How stupid can a theater talk show can be when the simple mention of the word Hamilton is forbidden. If Hamilton is the most succesful musical to come to Broadway in decades how can you keep avoiding its discussion program after program to the expense of dedicating a lot of talk and analysis to other shows that are minor in comparison. Michael Riedel has make his living going against the current and now the rest of the humanity ( yes Riedel, the rest of the humanity loves Hamilton and LMM) has to suffer the avoidance of its mention in a theater talk show. Susan your show is due for a long time in doing a Hamilton special, get rid of Riedel and watch how your ratings are going to rise to unprecedent levels.

    I loved HAMILTON, but I can see how in this one corner of the universe, there is room to discuss and give exposure to other shows, which have not had their every second analysed and dissected in the various media outlets like HAMILTON has.

    Again, I loved HAMILTON, and cannot wait to see it again.
