Hamilton's Schuyler Sisters Want You To Realize The Revolution Is Still Happening

They think Hamilton is coming to mass audiences at the perfect time for a revolution. Eliza Schuyler, Angelica Schuyler, and Peggy Schuyler are here to remind you that 'Hamilton' is not just a story about history. It's a story about using your power to enact change. Renée Elise Goldsberry, Jasmine Cephas Jones, and Phillipa Soo sat down to talk not only about how they approached playing women whose lives never had a paper trail (if you search Angelica Schuyler, you will see Renée's face), but how the enduring message of 'Hamilton' is always what you need at the time that you need it. Lin Manuel Miranda's cast of people of color brings a new layer to the story: showing people who would not have been in "the room where it happened" during the American Revolution, but can be in the room where it happens now. For Renée, Jasmine, and Phillipa, 'Hamilton' is not a story of the past revolution, it's inspiration for the current revolution that can now reach millions more through Disney+.
