Will Chase took a break from starring as William Shakespeare in Something Rotten! to appear in character in this week’s Hamilton #Ham4Ham show. In Something Rotten!, the Bard is an egomaniac and a leather-clad bad boy and, as we learn from his performance, not a Hamilfan.

Shakespeare does not take kindly to having his place as our most acclaimed playwright challenged by Miranda, and tells him to step off in a musical open letter to the tune of a Hamilton medley. Miranda, like Hamilton, works non-stop, and the Bard strongly urges (or threatens) him to “Take a Break.” 

Fingers crossed that the next #Ham4Ham is a cabinet battle between Shakespeare and Alexander Hamilton. Watch Chase channel the Bard in the video above.
