Lots of accolades have been slung the way of the performers in Hamilton, but let’s also give a hearty cheer for the people who cast the show. Like, the whole group who participated in finding these actors, auditioning them, matching them to the right roles… Lin knew a lot of them from out and about, including Daveed, but still. A lot of smart people did a lot of smart work here to put the correct parts in the hands of the correct souls. I don’t think Lafayette/Jefferson would be what they are if anyone else had been nurturing them.
