Answer:  HAM IT UP

(Ham-ilton is a must see!  Of course, I haven’t seen it yet.  But, maybe someday.  And of course, at $1000 – $1200 a ticket, it could be a long wait for yer dear old uncle!  Pigs, hamming it up, has been a popular recurring solve for The Jumble, but this one dove-tailed perfectly with the wildly popular Broadway show.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites, yet all of their jumbles came up as new.  I always hesitate a little on “burro” because of burrow, but they were all fine jumbles.  The answer letter layout made for a fine jumble too.  The cartoon is even more entertaining than yesterday’s barnyard scene!  It looks like yesterday’s “ESCAPE” GOAT made it back for the performance.  I guess he sowed his wild oats, and came back for the camaraderie of his fellow farm friends.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
