*Recorded on May 19th*
This episode is all about Chernow's Chapter 14: "Putting the Machine in Motion." We talk George Washington's sense of "doom" about the presidency, Angelica's Disney princess status, and the first writings referencing A.Ham's infidelity. Have you read this?!
This is a milestone episode! We meet with and interview a ‘Hamilton’ cast member for the first time! Seth Stewart (@IAMSethStewart) talks backstage at the Tonys, his responsibilities as the Green Captain of ‘Hamilton,’ the moment he realized he’d be best friends with Lin-Manuel Miranda, and why we should all #StayWeird. He also speaks directly to the Hamilfans. Jam!!!
On June 9th, 4PM, Eastern Standard Time we spoke to none other than Anthony Rapp! We chatted everything including his love of Hamilton, what it’s like being in the eye of the hurricane of a phenomenon (um RENT!), the Chicago Cubs, and what he thinks is missing on Broadway. Plus! We cast Hamilton characters and Rent characters. Well, as much as we could. Bonus! We channel Alexi Darling for our sign off.
It's almost time for the Hamiltonys! Well, Tony Awards to the non-Ham people out there. This week we talk Tony predictions (as painful as it may be), and tell you all about our new partnership with Broadway Radio.
