It goes without stating that “Hamilton” was a rousing financial success on Broadway. Smashing box office records and embedding itself into the cultural zeitgeist, this landmark musical, which chronicled the life of Alexander Hamilton and went into the nuances of other Establishing Dads, was changing the game. In the first couple of months of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, “Hamilton” moved to an entire new medium, thanks to Disney+. A shot variation of the program, starring the original Broadway cast, debuted on this service over the 4th of July weekend in 2020 rather of its initial October 2021 theatrical release. It was a huge threat giving up all those ticket office dollars in favor of providing the banner an increase. However, this release shift ended up settling as the extremely expected arrival of “Hamilton” proved to be a juggernaut in its own right and brought numerous eyeballs to Disney+ within its very first year of existence.
While Disney never revealed main viewership numbers for “Hamilton,” third-party services have provided an interesting peek into its reach. 7Park Data, for example, reported to Range that “Hamilton” had actually been more viewed than any other streaming project in July 2020 by a huge margin. In December 2020, it was exposed that “Hamilton” was the 2nd most viewed streaming motion picture of 2020, just behind “Wonder Lady 1984.” Any issues that the success of “Hamilton” would not equate to the small screen were gotten rid of with these reports.
