I can’t think of a better way to close this inspiring week than with a greeting card range inspired by this purely American musical. Yes, it may be impossible to get Hamilton tickets, but Meg Smith of Sweet Lady Designs — who has seen it five times and has even won the in-person lottery at the Richard Rodgers Theater — has introduced a series featuring lyrics from the production: “WERK,” “Young, Scrappy, Hungry” and “I’m Not Throwing Away My Shot.” Smith, whose range includes Beatle quotes as well as lyrics from ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ has said that “while the musical is lyrically perfect, there are some stand out lyrical moments. Just like ‘Rent’ has ‘No Day But Today,’ ‘Hamilton’ has ‘I’m Not Throwing Away My Shot.’ It’s one of those shows that pulls you in and brilliantly tells you a story and you need to soak it in more than once.” All the cards are printed in small batches and are hand-folded and -packed in New York City. Shop Meg’s entire Broadway collection here — and whatever you do, don’t miss out on her instant download prints, featuring the cast drawn to look like religious icons!
