Hamilton #Ham4Ham does Out Tonight with Schuyler Sisters

Posted on

Hamilton’s live #Ham4Ham shows may have taken their final curtain call (for now, at least), but a new digital one has the Schulyer Sisters doing their best Mimi from Rent.

Jasmine Cephas-Jones, Lexi Lawson, and former Hamilton star/Tony winner Renée Elise Goldsberry all joined forces for a rendition of “Out Tonight,” decked out in Mimi’s signature skintight blue pants.

It’s a fitting mashup, and not just because the two-tiered stage makes a good substitute for Mimi’s stairs or that both take place in what Hamilton dubs the Greatest City in the World. Goldsberry played Mimi in the final Broadway cast of Rent, and Lawson played the character on tour.

And while he’s no longer playing the $10 Founding Father without a father or emceeing the #Ham4Ham shows, Lin-Manuel Miranda chimed in with his approval.

 

Watch the Schuyler Mimis “work!” it in the video above.
