Trivia

Several roles are doubled between Acts One and Two: Lafayette / Thomas Jefferson, John Laurens / Philip Hamilton, Peggy Schuyler / Maria Reynolds, Hercules Mulligan / James Madison, Philip Schuyler / James Reynolds. When Lin-Manuel Miranda was asked on Twitter why Peggy Schuyler joined her sisters saying "Me, I loved him," in the opening number, he said the actress was meant to represent both Peggy and Maria in that moment, and that so too did the other doubled actors, congratulating listeners who caught the double meaning in such lines as "We fought with him", which could refer to Jefferson and Madison, who opposed Hamilton politically, or Lafayette and Mulligan, who fought alongside him in the war; as well as "Me, I died for him", which is sung by the actor playing Phillip Hamilton and John Laurens, both of whom were close to Hamilton and died. Named roles other than the principals are played by chorus members, who often return as soldiers, townspeople, courtiers, and/or slaves, often with ironies such as the slave identified as Sally Hemings returning as a woman who has sex with Philip.


Crazy Credits

The Walt Disney Pictures logo has red, white and blue fireworks (representing the fight for American independence, a major theme in the musical) surrounding the castle (appears only in the first trailer; the second trailer and the film itself use the normal version).
