Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Cut Hamilton Reprise
Listen to what George Washington's death might have sounded like in song.
Lin-Manuel Miranda has released to his SoundCloud account a cut song from Hamilton.
"Here you go. George Washington's Death, cut from Act Two. It comes after Dear Theodosia Reprise, also cut," Miranda tweeted. Listen to the song, a reprise of "One Last Time," below.
With book, music, and lyrics by Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and music direction and 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. The musical won 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score, Book of a Musical, Direction of a Musical, Choreography, and Orchestrations.
