Here's some nice news that may succeed in cheering up Hamilfans, especially in light of Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., and Phillipa Soo leaving the production next week. (Don't leave us, Daveed and Renée! Not now!) Hamilton's official Broadway cast recording all 46 songs has crossed the half-million sales mark in the United States. The past week saw an additional 32,000 copies sold, bringing its cumulative total up to 522,000. It now stands as the twelfth-best-selling cast album of all time since Nielsen Music began tracking the sales in 1991. (They're coming for ya, Jersey Boys.) In the event you don't want to cough up a few bucks for the album, it's also streaming on Spotify for some ... "Non-Stop" ... musical enjoyment.
