It was a starry night at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on November 13 as the hit Broadway musical Hamilton welcomed American Horror Story favorite Angela Bassett, Waitress composer-lyricist Sara Bareilles, and How to Get Away With Murder star Jack Falahee. TheaterMania was on hand to snap photos of the backstage visits, which you can see in the gallery below.
Directed by Thomas Kail and inspired by Ron Chernow's biography Alexander Hamilton, Hamilton explores the life of the American founding father and first Secretary of the Treasury, as well as his experiences as an orphan of the British West Indies who immigrated to the 13 Colonies and helped shape the United States of America. It began Broadway previews July 13 and opened on August 6 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Hamilton had its world premiere at the Public Theater.
Miranda leads the cast as Alexander Hamilton, alongside Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr), Drama Desk Award winner Renée Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler), Phillipa Soo (Eliza Hamilton), Jonathan Groff (King George), Daveed Diggs (Marquis De Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson), Christopher Jackson (George Washington), Anthony Ramos (John Laurens, Phillip Hamilton), Okieriete Onaodowan (Hercules Mulligan, James Madison), and Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggy Shuyler, Maria Reynolds).
