Watch: SAG Conversations with Actors from Broadway’s ‘Hamilton’

Happy anniversary, Hamilton! The smash-hit musical opened on Broadway on this day two years ago, and it’s still next-to-impossible to get reasonably-priced seats at the Richard Rodgers Theatre long after the original cast moved on to other projects.

Still, that doesn’t mean the actors performing Hamilton now aren’t worth paying an arm-and-a-leg to see. In this nearly eighty-minute coversation presented by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and Broadway World and moderated by Broadway World’s Richard Ridge, the current cast of HamiltonJavier Muñoz (Alexander Hamilton), Brandon Victor Dixon (Aaron Burr), James Monroe Iglehart (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Mandy Gonzalez (Angelica Schuyler), and Bryan Terrell Clark (George Washington). The cast speaks about filling the big shoes of the original cast and performing in perhaps the most popular American musical in decades.
