Hamilton: Jonathan Groff, Brian d’Arcy James, Andrew Rannells unite for Ham 4 Ham performance
Before Saturday’s performance of the Broadway smash Hamilton, the past, present, and future iterations of King George teamed up for one regal show.
Jonathan Groff, Brian d’Arcy James, and Andrew Rannells gave a special lip synch performance of “The Schuyler Sisters” as part of the show’s daily “Ham 4 Ham” program, which allows fans to enter a same-day lottery in the hope of scoring $10 Hamilton tickets. Cast members, as well as other Broadway heavyweights, often stop by to give an impromptu performance. Show creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda usually emcees the event, but since he’s out sick with the flu, Renee Elise Goldsberry (who plays Angelica Schuyler) stepped in.
D’Arcy James originated the role of King George at the Public Theater, Groff took over when the show headed to Broadway, and Rannells will wear King George’s crown from Oct. 27 through Nov. 29.
