It’s not quite seeing “Hamilton” on Broadway, but some of the cast are stepping off the big stage to perform a showcase at The Living Room bar next month, and for free!
The event, part of the W Times Square hotel’s Broadway @ the W program, will feature Nicholas Christopher (George Washington), Lexi Lawson (Eliza Hamilton) and original cast member Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds), along with five ensemble performers and alternates. A special guest usually accompanies the performance, though Lin-Manuel Miranda is off in London so don’t expect a cameo by the original A.Ham.
Each performer gets to choose what they’ll be bringing to the stage, whether it’s a song from the show or another artist, or even something like spoken word — which could be likely, given the post-election anxiety voiced by the musical’s cast.
Entry is free, though you canscore a reserved seaton one of the bar’s sofas for $20. Doors open at 6:30p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m., with special Broadway-themed cocktails and drink specials throughout the performance. The Living Room is located on the seventh floor of the hotel, at 1567 Broadway between 46th and 47th streets.
