The Hamilcast: A Hamilton Podcast

In this podcast about all things Hamilton, Hamilton-related, Hamilton-adjacent, or anything else in the Miranda universe, I (your host Gillian Pensavalle) talk to guests (and my sometimes co-host/all times husband Michael Paul Smith) about such things as: how Hamilton brings people together, how we find Ham references in everyday life, and the general brilliance of the show. I'm proud to say that we've spoken to almost everyone from the original creative team (aka "The Cabinet") including the man himself: Lin-Manuel Miranda. In addition, I've had cast members from every company, crew members, musicians, creatives, and the hard working people that keep the production alive. I've also had to pleasure of speaking to experts on the show and its history, some of my superfan friends of note, celebrity Ham enthusiasts, and everything in between.  When I started this podcast in January of 2016, I could not have imagined the incredible community that has grown around the show and the amazing experiences that have come my way. Thank you to everyone who has listened, appeared on the show, contributed, or reached out in any way. This podcast is for you and I absolutely love making it. If you have any great Ham stories or funny references that you've come across, let me know! Email TheHamilcast [at] gmail [dot] com, or contact me on social media @TheHamilcast. I also have a Patreon that has given rise to the loveliest corner of the internet, ever.

Hamilton Broadway's Sean Green Jr. (Ensemble, Mulligan/Madison, Washington, Burr) is full of energy and honesty and we go in on all the things! Sean tells a *crazy* story about going on for Mulligan/Madison for the first time and how it resulted in a bad injury, a month off, overwhelming anxiety, and lots of self-reflection. Sean also talks about growing up in Philly, plays audio messages from his Dad, and gets a surprise FaceTime from an old friend. We had a blast!

Hamilton set designer David Korins stops buy to drink martinis, eat olives, do headstands, talk about the upcoming #Hamiltent exhibition (OH MY GOD YOU GUYS IT SOUNDS AMAZING), why the original turntables had to recently be replaced, and why The Cabinet™ can only get nicer and more generous. But David isn't just about Broadway so we talk about many of his other projects and he gives a *lot* of excellent advice.
