This ‘Hamilton’ Cast Member Is Issuing a ‘Gentle Reminder’ to Those Watching Disney+ Production
One of the members of the original cast of Hamilton, Javier Muñoz, is issuing a gentle reminder that the Disney+ version of the musical does not actually include the full original cast.
“A gentle reminder that Hamilton on Disney+ is not the original cast. It is the original production. Both Betsy Struxness and Emmy Raver Lampman are absent as they’d already left the show. These are 2 brilliant artists who poured their hearts into creating their tracks,” Javier tweeted out to fans who were citing the version as the full original cast.
Emmy Raver Lampman was part of the ensemble but left the show to star in the Spongebob Squarepants musical in Chicago. Betsy understudied the role of Angelica Schuyler but left the production in March of 2016. This version of Hamilton was filmed in June of 2016.
Javier was part of the original cast, but played the alternate for the role of Alexander Hamilton. In the Disney+ filmed version, Lin-Manuel Miranda portrays the role.
