Amino for Hamilton Fans
If you’ve seen Phantom on Broadway and the West End, know the complete libretto to Les Miserables by heart, and enjoy speed-rapping Hamilton’s “My Shot” in the shower, have we got a social network for you. (Cue the jazz hands!)
Amino for Broadway connects theater aficionados, providing a space to write reviews, share fan art, and geek out with like-minded enthusiasts. The debut of Mean Girls is a hot topic here, as are the Frozen and SpongeBob Squarepants musicals. There’s just one overriding rule: Whatever you post has to be about Broadway.
“There are communities for anything where you can think, huh, am I the only person who has this interest?” says Max Sebela, general manager at Amino Apps. “And then you find that there are hundreds of thousands of people as excited as you.”
Some shows are so big they have their own dedicated app. The 2017 Tony winner for Best Musical, Dear Evan Hansen, has one. So does Hamilton, the 2016 Tony winner for basically everything.
The “Featured” feed on Amino for Hamilton serves as a clearinghouse for fan sketches and paintings of show characters. Quizzes and polls test how closely you paid attention during the performance, while public chat rooms let you theorize about the nature of the next “Hamildrop.”
There are hundreds of thousands of people as excited as you.
Meanwhile, a post on Amino for Dear Evan Hansen challenges fans to make a 10-song playlist based on the characters in the play. And fan-made drawings riff off the show’s inspiring theme: “You will be found.”
So which show will get the next Amino? “We’ll let our users be the signal for that,” Sebela says. “Wherever we see the most fan energy, that’s where we’ll act accordingly.” So if you’ve been dying to share your SpongeBob fan fiction with the world, your chance may come sooner than you think.
