Dulce Yadira Valencia: An American DREAMer - a @HamiltonMusical thread:

So, I am not a fan of musicals, I’m the person who watches movies with subtitles. I need to fully understand. Singing makes it hard for me. My friend, @PLANDulce absolutely LOVES musicals. Much to my meh.
For-ever she’s been harassing me w/singing the songs from @HamiltonMusical, way before it was famous. This week she was given the amazing opportunity by @latinovictoryus & @CristobalJAlex to attend opening night at @SmithCenterLV
I decided to finally be supportive: skirt time!
As my mom modeled for me, I got to working on @PLANDulce’s favorite @HamiltonMusical quotes. Some I knew because of the harassment, others were cute and new to me. (Ugh, I forgot the comma...too late) I had one day to finish the skirt but I was determined to finish.
Finally, the time came to unveil the skirt to @PLANDulce, I really hoped she’d like it because if not *side eye* I spent an entire day on it. But in usual Dulce fashion, she was super happy!

Look at that face! Even if my search history is now all @HamiltonMusical
We arrived, ON TIME, she picked up our tickets.

Y’all already know she was losing it.
.@PLANDulce was gracious enough to drag @josemacias8 and I along on her dream. @Olacfz also accompanied us and mad props to him for not just leaving the 3 of us and pretending he didn’t know us.
We’re a handful.

#GolosoAdventure #DREAMBig
We ran into @cassie_UU and it started to finally hit @PLANDulce that she was going into @HamiltonMusical
.@PLANDulce showing off her skirt (which she liked! Yey!) outside of @SmithCenterLV
.@HamiltonMusical skirt, but most importantly look at that smile!? @PLANDulce was finally going in to see the play which she is been singing to everyone for almost 4 years. We knew everything about @Lin_Manuel & the musical. He wrote something about heights and Schumer sisters...
(Phone always does Schumer sisters *shrug*) other @HamiltonMusical fans also liked the skirt and @PLANDulce almost stole the show.
I will admit, @HamiltonMusical was flashy and the set/dance/singing/lights were all on point. But nothing compared to looking back and seeing these little tears of emotions stream from @PLANDulce

(Again, thanks @latinovictoryus y @CristobalJAlex and the entire staff)
.@PLANDulce was able to meet @JosephAMorales (A. Ham) and @NikkyWalks (A. Burr - also, y’all, yaaaaaaallllllll....mmmmm-mm)

How amazing is this!?!? She’s spent forever loving this and she was able to meet the people who she has creepishly been an understudy for in her mind.
#KyleScatliffe (LaFayette/TJ) & #ElijahMalcolm (Laurens/P.Ham) also got in on @HamiltonMusical skirt action! They were great & took the ⏱to meet @PLANDulce

@Olacfz, @josemacias8 & I stood by, it was like watching ur kid meet Mickey for the 1st time, but she’s a foot taller...
.@fergsters95 (Hercules Mulligan/James Madison) and @PLANDulce - seriously, I can’t say enough how gracious all of the actors were. Their talent is seriously incredible. @HamiltonMusical tour is a production to see.
Then came the moment she had been waiting for!!! @shoba_narayan (Eliza Hamilton)!

Now I’ve told y’all how much @PLANDulce had annoyed me with singing this musical over and over, never once had she told me about the ending (maybe it was when I tuned her out) - WOW. It was good.
Next things got really weird, @PLANDulce started running to these 2 men. We were scared she had finally snapped. Turns out it was #TommyKail & @LacketyLac (she kept yelling “OG3” orig @HamiltonMusical arrangers) again, I apologize to them 4 the attack & not liking it for 4 years
What else do you do when your dreams have just come true??

This is the face of sheer happiness, no matter what life throws at her, @PLANDulce will overcome it. She’s taking her shot, she’s young, scrappy and hungry, she’s an immigrant and she gets the job done! #DREAMBig 💜
Seriously it was an honor to share this momentous occasion with you @PLANDulce - keep making your dreams come true! Even if they’re annoyingly loud!

You definitely made this group of friends proud...(and hopefully we didn’t scare @Olacfz away)
Saved this for last:

I, Astrid V. Silva, went to see @HamiltonMusical book, music and lyrics by @Lin_Manuel, inspired by the book ‘Alexander Hamilton’ by Ron Chernow, and enjoyed it.

Gracias @PLANDulce (pic) for making me do things that I don’t like to do & spreading sunshine
Wow! My ❤️ feels like it grew 18x! Usually when I get tons of tweets it’s telling me “go back to ur country” this is so sweet! TY LVP!
