Andrew Chappelle joins us this week and he went IN, friends! Grab the popcorn because we get some great behind-the-scenes tidbits. Andrew told us about #SwingLife and what it's like to have played Aaron Burr, King George III, George Washington, Mulligan/Madison, Lafayette/Jefferson, Laurens/Philip, James Reynolds, and Philip Schuyler in Hamilton. We talk about his favorite character to play, his recent trip to Europe, the wonders of Snapchat, and of course... Patti LuBone.
The thing about the Reynolds affair is that it was bananas and there were so many people involved. This week, we tackle Ron Chernow's Chapter 21: "Exposure" which is "We Know" only with three entirely different dudes. The endless soap opera of Hamilton's bad decisions is even more convoluted than you think but Chernow reminds us that this is just the beginning. BA DA DA DA DUM.
Playbill's own Felicia Fitzpatrick joins us as we discuss every track on the #HamiltonMixtape. We go IN, so get ready!
Mike joins us as we recap Lin Manuel Miranda's hilariously boozy "Drunk History" appearance. We also talk about our favorite "Drunk History" episodes, the stories we'd love to tell (Hamilton and non-Hamilton), our favorite reenactors, and start the #Grohl4Hamilcast movement. Plus! Gillian and Mike had a full on In the Heights moment while rehearsing for Mike's new play - in a basement, no less!
