      From my experience watching the show in the West End - say no to this was the biggest kicker: Reynolds pamphlet was more just desserts. But I think it important to add that the audible reaction is more due to the influence of pantomime in British theatre - which encourages audience response. Most of us aren’t scandalised by the mere mention of someone cheating

    Dunno... I'm American, my girlfriend is English, and I spend a good part of the year in the UK. One thing Brits are not hung up about is sex. Just saw some game show where a naked guy comes out to surprise the celebrity contestants, though all they showed the cameras was his ass -- imagine that on US TV!

    Well adultery is rather scandalous ;)
    I thought Americans had a reputation for being more puritan than we are, for instance nipple gate or how British TV beat US TV with gay characters kissing etc.

    I feel like we laugh at funny lines. I personally find Americans or at least American culture/politics to be far more hung up over sex. Remember when you made Skins US...
    I saw Hamilton in the west end, no one was ‘oooo’ ing, they just laughed at an innuendo line

    It’s kind of funny to think Americans would think we take offence at them making fun of old kings!! First off, we have waaaaaaay to many to be properly offended if someone does and second, horrible histories (one of the greatest shows ever) had some pretty great digs George III and pretty much all the old kings and queens

      In all seriousness though I massively appreciate that Miranda made it America vs George III rather than America vs Britain. Parliament had little say back then and he even mentions in What Comes Next that they didn’t support the war.

    "Get your education, don't forget from whence you came

    Alexander Hamilton
    My name is Alexander Hamilton
    And there's a million thing I haven't done
    But just you wait, just you wait
    When he was 10, his father split, full of it, debt ridden
    2 years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden
    Half-dead, sitting in their own sick, the scent thick
    And Alex got better but his mother went quick
    Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide
    Left him with nothing but ruined pride, something new inside
    A voice saying, "Alex you gotta fend for yourself"
    He started retreating and reading every treatise on the shelf
    There woulda been nothing left to do for someone less astute
    He woulda been dead and destitute without a cent of restutition
    Started working, clerking for his late mother's landlord
    Trading sugar cane and rum and all the things he can't afford
    Scanning for every book he can get his hands on
    Planning for the future, see him now as he stands on
    The bow of a ship headed for a new land
    In New York you can be a new man
