Hamilton's Original Schuyler Sisters to Reunite for Super Bowl Performance
Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Jasmine Cephas Jones are headed to Houston.
Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Jasmine Cephas Jones, the three former Hamilton cast members who originated the roles of the Schuyler Sisters (Eliza, Angelica, and Peggy), will reunite at the Super Bowl. The trio will come together to sing "America the Beautiful" during a televised pregame show, it has been announced.
The game, which will take place at the NRG Stadium in Houston on February 5, is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm EST. The New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons will go head to head at the bowl, which will air on FOX.
Soo, Goldsberry, and Jones have all since left the cast of Broadway's Hamilton and are each focused on other projects. Soo, a Tony nominee for her role in the show, is now preparing to lead the Broadway debut of Amélie, A New Musical, while Tony winner Goldsberry is working on Netflix's Altered Carbon. Jones has filmed appearances on upcoming episodes of the series Blood Surf.
With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and music direction/orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War, and was the new nation's first Treasury Secretary.
