      This, in case you somehow didn't know (and please accept our sincere congratulations on finally waking up from that years-long coma, yo, it's good to have you back), is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Brought to town by the good people of Broadway in Austin, it's a phenomenon that's worthy of its endless hype, and they say tickets are possibly still available if you were born on a full moon, the wind is coming in from the northeast, and the Westlake sibyl dances a clockwise tarantella during consultation. Or, better: See the website right here for the show's two-days-before ticket lottery.
