WKU Student Stages Epic ‘Hamilton’ Themed Marriage Proposal [VIDEO]

I have a late entry for National Proposal Day, and it’s very clever. Western Kentucky University student Elijah Essa and his fiancee’ Sarah Burnett are huge fans of the Tony-winning musical¬†Hamilton.¬†On February 13th, Elijah gathered a big group of the couple’s friends at Van Meter Hall to stage a marriage proposal, complete with choreography, set in the world of Hamilton.¬†

The story was picked up by several major media outlets including Broadway.com. Both Essa and Burnett are from Louisville. How romantic!
