Weekends are great for unwinding, and maybe even unplugging for a little while. Here's what trended that you might have missed if you weren't on social media the last couple days.


'Hamilton' is coming to the Straz Center in Tampa. 


Tampa won't have to wait for it for much longer. 

Hamilton, the award-studded rap-musical about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton is coming to Tampa. 

I'll just give you a moment to let that sink in.

Tampa's David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts announced that the musical will come to the theater's Morsani Hall (the room where it will be happening) during the 2018-19 season for "multiple weeks," though exact dates aren't expected to be released until early 2018. 

The hip-hop show by Lin-Manuel Miranda has snagged 11 Tony awards, won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama, churned out an explosively popular mixtape and has set off unprecedented demand across the country and world. 

But securing a ticket to see Hamilton, easily Broadway's hottest musical in decades, isn't going to be easy. 

Season subscribers and donors have first dibs on tickets, with prime seats going to those who have subscribed the longest.

There will be general admission seats available, but they will go fast.

Very fast.

 

Adele confirms marriage to longtime partner Simon Konecki

Adele has officially announced she and longtime partner Simon Konecki are married, weeks after hinting at the hitch during a speech at last month's Grammy Awards.

The pair have been together for five years and have a 4-year-old son, Angelo. 

She confirmed their status at a concert in Brisbane, Australia, on Saturday by casually dropping in the news to the audience as she discussed Someone Like You, a hit written the pain involved during a break-up.

“That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth,” she said, captured in a fan’s video posted online. “And I am addicted to that feeling. Obviously, I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now."

And there we have it. 

Congrats, Adele.

 

'Logan' slashes weekend box-office debut at $85.3 million

People really like Hugh Jackman. 

Logan, starring Jackman as the world's favorite haunted and deadly Wolverine, ripped into the weekend box office, opening to a massive $85.3 million. 

That's a sharp lead, Logan.

The R-rated Marvel movie marks Jackman's last go as Wolverine after playing the character for 17 years. 

The film is set in the near future, and follows Wolverine and an old Professor X as they come out of hiding to help a young - and pretty lethal - mutant. 

Check out the trailer below.
