People living in Hamilton can't stop thinking the musical could have been about them

People all over the world have been excitedly sitting down to watch a recording of the smash hit Broadway show Hamilton since its release on Disney+ last week.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator and star of the hugely successful musical, decided to release the recording after live theatre ground to a halt during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

While many Canadians have watched the show since it started steaming last Friday, some people in Hamilton, Ont. were having a little fun at the thought of Hamilton actually being about their city.

Taking to Twitter, multiple Canadians mused about the idea the show was about the city in Ontario, rather than U.S. founding father, Alexander Hamilton. 

Some people suggested they were disappointed by the fact that Canada wasn't mentioned once during the two-hour-and-thirty-minute show.

While others argued that the Canadian port city by far outshines the Tony Award winning musical.

Hamilton is available to stream on Disney+ now. Hamilton, Ontario is about an hour's drive from Toronto.
