Patrick Vassel, Hamilton's Associate & Supervising Director, rounds out his episodes with details about those scary work sessions we've heard about from so many actors (finally), fills us in on The Character Constitution, and talks about the upcoming productions in Australia and Hamburg, Germany.
Patrick Vassel, Hamilton's Associate & Supervising Director, is back this week to talk moving from The Public to Broadway, the joy and misery of tech, and how The Cabinet (Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, Alex Lacamoire, and Andy Blankenbuehler) established and continue to keep an extraordinary amount of trust among eeryone working on the show. Oh! And PDV raps cut lyrics from two songs, with explicit permission from Lin-Manuel, who texted us during the recording.

Hello! A message from the King! (Get it? Because Rory O'Malley has been in both The Book of Mormon *and* Hamilton). Join me as I hang out with the kind, funny, warm, and super talented Rory O'Malley! Rory talks about what it's like to be a brand new father, he tells me his Hamilton story and his experience playing King George III on Broadway and the first national tour, and we bond over podcasting. Plus, we talk The Book of Mormon including sage advice about King George III from Andrew Rannells, what KGIII and Elder McKinley have in common, and Rory does one hell of a Josh Gad impression.
