On Saturday, October 19, Jay and I saw Leslie Odom Jr. perform in concert at Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh, NC. He was great. He opened with one of my favorite songs from Hamilton, “Wait for It,” which surprised me. I thought for sure that we’d have to wait until the end for that song. It kept getting better from there. He sang a variety of songs, including a Nat King Cole song and an audience-singalong of “The Hi De Ho Man.” The other Hamilton songs he sang were “Dear Theodosia” (Jay’s favorite) and “The Room Where It Happened.” He also sang “Without You,” from Rent. All in all, it was a really great show.
Here’s a short (under 2 minutes) video that Jay made that compiles clips of the Hamilton shows he did.
