If you're concerned about a Cats level debacle, we've got some good news for you. Tom Hooper is not involved, and this is not a new version of the movie. Instead, in 2016, before one of the original cast left, a professional crew filmed three live performances.
You will see an edited version of Hamilton that combines these three versions into one. So if you're like most people who couldn't see Hamilton at the peak of its popularity, this is your chance to see it with the original cast and crew.
