Hamilton Goes to BroadwayCon

Hamilton Goes to BroadwayCon


The Hilton Midtown was packed with theatre fans at the first annual BroadwayCon today. At 5pm Lin-Manuel Miranda (Alexander Hamilton), Renee Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler), Phillipa Soo (Eliza Schuyler), Chris Jackson (George Washington), Jonathon Groff (King George), Daveed Diggs ((Thomas Jefferson/Marquis de Lafayette), Okieriete ”Oak” Onaodowan (James Madison/Hercules Mulligan) and Leslie Odom, Jr. (Aaron Burr) were joined by Playbill’s Blake Ross to show their fans that they were available for their love.

Ms. Ross asked the cast how they first came to be involved in Hamilton. While working on In The Heights, Miranda  pulled Jackson aside backstage and told him what he was writing. Leslie Odom, Jr. got an email from Lin titled “Octo-BURR-fest.” Phillipa Soo was asked to come to a table read. Jonathan Groff  got the role when Brian D’Arcy James’s show Something Rotten, fast-tracked to Broadway. The rest of the cast well had to audition. Phillipa Soo, stated the best things she hears at the stage door is “Thank you for representing Asian American women.”With the closing of Allegiance this was a nice sentiment.

Impromptu freestyle rapping happened from the cast but it was when the audience rapped back that the love was felt.
