The original Broadway cast of Hamilton, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, will reunite on Friday for a virtual fundraiser for Joe Biden and other Democrat politicians running for office. The reunion will feature a panel discussion as well as a “special” online performance by cast members.
“Anything you donate will be used to elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Democrats up and down the ballot,” the official invitation reads. The event will feature appearances by actors Lin-Manuel Miranda, Daveed Diggs, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Jonathan Groff, Christopher Jackson, Javier Muñoz, Leslie Odom, Jr., Okieriete Onaodowa, and Phillipa Soo.
A cast Q&A session will be moderated by Thomas Kail, who directed the Tony Award-winning musical. The discussion will be followed by a “special performance.”
Lin-Manuel Miranda has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and has teamed up with Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote initiative, which is pushing voter registration among young people
