BROADWAY: Stage Door Hamilton Lip Sync [VIDEO]

Some gay Broadway magic happened on Friday night at the stage door of sold-out smash rap musical Hamilton, where stars of musical theater have been showing up to entertain the crowds lined up in hopes of scoring one of the $10 lottery tickets. Deadline recaps:

In this weekend’s edition, cast member Renee Elise Goldsberry lip-synchs the title role (Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda is sidelined with the flu) while Jonathan Groff, who plays King George; Brian d’Arcy James (who originated the role in the downtown tryout and currently stars in Something Rotten! not to mention the soon to open film Spotlight) and Andrew Rannells, the former Book Of Mormon and Hedwig star and Girls regular play the show’s social-climbing Schuyler sisters as if to the manner born, all sporting crowns, in a karaoke set that drew appreciative huzzahs and mayhem from the crowd, as you can see.

    I just fell in love 4 times over, and became a little bisexual too!

    time for me to take another visit to Broadway, it really is magical. The people who put on 8 shows a week, do indeed really work for art. Love it!

    • David Walker

      To me, the ones who REALLY work for art are the ones on tour. They play a “regular” schedule in cities that can support Saturday matinees, but when they hit a place like Hershey, they get to do 5 shows basically in a row… Friday night, Saturday matinee, Saturday night, Sunday matinee, and Sunday night (curtain at 7:30, not 8). Plus every Tuesday night is opening night…same show, but in a different burg and a different theater. I always wanted to do that.

    Disco died…why can’t hip-hop?

    • unclemike

      Because hip-hop is more creative, more intelligent, and more fun than disco? Just spitballin’ here.

      • canoebum

        You’re entitled to your opinion of course, but I guess I’m just old fashioned in thinking music should include a melody.

        • David Walker

          I’m lucky in that I have no neighbors who listen to it. And one of the neighbors’ kids have started a rock band that rehearses in the garage. They’re not awful and they don’t practice into the night.

          On the other hand, the LGBT Center is at a traffic light on the Midtown’s main drag. It’s Harrisburg’s longest light, so when someone’s listening to rap really loud, I get to “sample” it for about a minute. The one recording that really gets me is the one that uses “motherfucker” as the bass line. It both makes me laugh and my eyes roll. I think it’s the macho posturing that makes me barf.

      • ElenorRigby

        no, that’s not it. Disco never really died. It’s still here. I do wish Rap would go away and take it’s ginger step child “hiphop” with it.

    • Jeffrey

      I hate rap, but hip hop is brilliant and unexpected in Hamilton and makes musical theater more accessible to a group of people who may not have gotten into it otherwise. So thats a good thing. The show is very good and Ill bet you’d like it if you saw it.

    • tcinsf

      Get off my lawn!

      • canoebum

        Oh, please. Age has nothing to do with it. As music, it’s horrible. You’re just going to have to live with that.

  • Amy

    Renee is actually playing Aaron Burr.

    • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

      I’m perfectly content with having read the hilariously ferocious Burr by Gore Vidal. A must-read. Both the Bear and I LOL’d through lots of the book, which still left us with a sense of having learned something.

      I’ll pass the hip-hop version.

      • Amy

        Uh, your loss, I guess. Hamilton is great.

        • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

          No doubt, my loss. In French, we would say:
          “Des goûts et des couleurs, on ne dispute pas.”

          This being said, if it did come to Montreal, I would likely see it.

  • M Jackson

    Hamilton” is a revelation and it’s hip hop/R&B/pop score is musical magic.
    I saw the show in July and am only slightly more enthusiastic about it than their press agent.

    For several decades the common wisdom has been that the American musical was dying, due to movie adaptations, Disney, jukebox musicals, Cats and Les Miz, you name it.
    But as the Schuyler sisters sing, “Look around, look around/ at how lucky we are to be alive right now” — in the past two years we have had “Here Lies Love”, “Natasha Pierre and the Amazing Comet of 1812”, “Fun Home”, and now the incredibly rich genius of “Hamilton”.
    We could actually be in some kind of new Golden Age.

    • tcinsf

      I never buy into that crap about musical theater dying. Every once in a while, something absolutely amazing pops up. Hamilton is apparently this season’s (and possibly several seasons) “it.” I’m thinking about making the trip east to see it with the originals, I”m pretty confident it will be in SF soon enough, but this is one where I”d rather like to see the original performers.

      • M Jackson

        Good luck! The two women Goldsberry and Phillipa Soo in particular are unforgettable, singing some of Manuel’s richest melodies.

        • tcinsf

          Yeah, I heard. I can personally wait a few months, but finding something other than a jacket up resale ticket is tough.

  • jo gerardo

    In every generation there are a few that will always complain that music was better in their day. It all started with a caveman that griped about his neighbor’s kids using a stick instead of a bone to bang out a rhythm on a hollowed log.
    True story; those kids later became The Wayouts.

  • ChadSF

    That.was.amazing. One of the hottest shows and so wishing we could see it while we’re in town next week, but nevertheless that was a total treat. 🙂
