Tom Brady a big fan of ‘Hamilton,’ would ‘love to just be on that show’
Tom Brady on Wednesday revealed to being a huge fan of “Hamilton,” even saying after seeing it several times that it would be quite the experience to join the cast.
Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen caught a “Hamilton” show in Boston on Tuesday night, the third such occasion he has been in attendance at a performance of the smash musical. The New England Patriots could not help but rave about it.
“Oh, I love ‘Hamilton,’ ” Brady told reporters Wednesday after practice at Gillette Stadium, via Boston.com. “It’s my third time seeing it. Yeah, it’s a great show. Anyone who’s here should go see it. It was great in New York. It was actually really good (Tuesday) night. I loved it.”
The presence of Brady and Bundchen at the performance not surprisingly was noticed by fellow theatergoers, and some pics of the supercouple showed up on social media.

It was even mentioned how Brady’s large hat probably would have irked the person in the seat behind him … if it had been anyone else but Brady.
So if (a very tall) Tom Brady was sitting in front of you at Hamilton wearing this (very large) hat, would your anger at having your (very expensive) view blocked outweigh your excitement? https://t.co/nlUvA9N1hN

Brady politely declined to break out in song when asked by reporters. He did express a desire, perhaps jokingly, to perhaps one day joining a touring group of the beloved Broadway musical.
“I did tell my wife [that] one day I would love to just be on that show for, I don’t know, a week,” Brady said. “But I would need a lot of practice.”
Patriots captain Matthew Slater unfortunately does not believe Brady has the chops to handle the demands of participating in any musical, much less “Hamilton.”
“[Tom] might have the rap skills, but I think it’s going to be the dancing that ultimately keeps him from being cast in that role,” Slater said, laughing.
An aspiring stage actor can dream, can he not? Perhaps realizing such a goal is for another day. Brady, meanwhile, has his hands full preparing for Sunday’s road game against the New York Jets, especially coming off an uncharacteristically rough performance in a lopsided loss last week to the Tennessee Titans.
