EXCLUSIVE Lucky theatergoers who had tickets for “Hamilton” yesterday and for tomorrow night will be part of history.
The 11 time Tony winner is filming with all of its original cast members for posterity. Lead actors Lin Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., and Phillipa Soo are exiting the show on July 9th.
The show taped yesterday’s performance and will also tape tomorrow night. Some filming will go on today, which has caused the cancellation of Odom’s record release party tonight.
What will happen to this filmed version is unclear. Most Broadway shows tape a performance for posterity, for the Lincoln Center library. But the original cast version of “Hamilton” done right is probably worth a lot of money. A real feature film is likely 8 to 10 years away.
