WASHINGTON -- "Hamilton" producer Jeffrey Seller may have tipped off to Sen. Amy Klobuchar that his famous hip-hop musical is coming soon to Minnesota.
Klobuchar has been rap-engaging with Seller about the effects of "bots" when trying to buy online tickets. Klobuchar has a bill banning the use of ticket bots, which recently passed out of the Senate Commerce Committee.
Seller responded in rap-form on Monday to Klobuchar, cryptically suggesting the traveling show may some day be in the Twin Cities.
(To the tune of "Alexander Hamilton")
I sure love Minneapolis-St. Paul.
There's a million fans who'll see the show.
But you'll have to wait,
Just you wait ...
Or to quote one more (Hamilton creator) Lin-Manuel Miranda song:
"Paciencia y Fe."
We have a plan for Minneapolis that we will be announcing in the coming months."
Seller's response comes after Klobuchar, in a rap, beseeched Seller to bring the Hamilton's traveling show to Minnesota.
"How does a Great-Laked, north state, home of a Prince and some
Gophers, nice, in that we're always so
Polite, the might of good Midwesterners, by watchfulness
So populous with fanfare
Get Hamilton the musical to tour there?
Mr. Seller, do not throw away Minnesota's shot."
