As of this writing, you could snag two good seats to tomorrow’s matinee for $861.62 each in Row P (seats 103-104) or economize in the fifth row of the mezzanine for $484.88 each.
But you can also listen to the original cast album, free, just-released made available here on NPR.
Three things the next president should do are:
- Amend the Affordable Care Act to allow Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate drug prices and direct the FDA to take a harder line on approvals and pricing (and/or make it easier for private insurers to piggyback on the prices Medicare and Medicaid negotiate). Why should a 62-year-old generic drug suddenly be hiked from $13.50 a pill to $750? There are many outrageous examples like this; but this one is so egregious, it just might turn into one of those, “at long last, have you no sense of decency” moments that turn the tide.
- Ramp up the efforts, already underway, to reform our criminal justice system — see, for example, The Atlantic‘s cover story this month.
- Keep Hamilton on the $10 bill and replace Jackson with a woman in 2020. (And not Ben Carson’s mom or Mike Huckabee’s wife, either — this one).
