The highly anticipated filmed version of the hip hop musical “Hamilton” is set to launch on the Disney+ streaming service July 3rd. To celebrate, members of the cast are hosting a meet-up online with proceeds from the event going to support Ireland’s Artist Emergency Relief Fund.
Irish Fans of Hamilton are invited to join members of the cast for an online pre-watch-party on July 2nd. Original cast member Thayne Jasperson (pictured) who is featured in the forthcoming release will be joined by Austin Scott who played Hamilton for two years and Ryan Vasques who is currently part of the Broadway cast. The stars will discuss the release, answer questions and may even perform.
The show, which is about America’s first Treasury Secretary, has been a global sensation and won 11 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize. The 60-second trailer, released Sunday, shows a montage of scenes from the critically acclaimed drama. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSCKfXpAGHc
