Hamilton Lyrics Quiz: the all-new Hamilton quiz

If you’ve read our travel with the musicals post, you’ll know we’ve been in a musical theatre mood recently. During lockdown, we couldn’t travel to Broadway or enjoy a night out in the West End to watch Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical, Hamilton, but thanks to Disney Plus we were able to enjoy the brilliance from home. To make it even more fun, we’ve put together a Hamilton quiz – or more specifically a Hamilton lyrics quiz – for you to play as you watch along, OR to simply test your superfan knowledge.
