Michelle Obama to Bring Hamilton to the White House
First Lady Michelle Obama will bring the Broadway cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton to the White House on March 14 for a special student workshop and performance from the juggernaut musical.
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. The show had its world premiere at the Public Theater in 2015.
Miranda leads the cast of 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), Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggy Shuyler, Maria Reynolds), and Javier Muñoz (Hamilton alternate).
The trip was revealed during today's digital #Ham4Ham video, which you can watch below.
