Tyler talks about his Hamilton journey, his strong connection to spirituality, the glory of EduHam, finding stillness in a show that's nonnnnn STOP, and what George Eacker is thinking when Philip interrupts his big night out. This episode is so fun and Tyler brings such a positive energy and outlook to his life, his work,...


Episode #105: The word got around, they said, "This kid is insane man!"

Antuan "Magic" Raimone lives up to his nickname as a Universal Swing in Hamilton.

Episode #102: Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of // Part Two

Episode #101: Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of // Part One

Remember when Eddy Lee called our recording a therapy session during last episode's Hamilton House Party? Yeah, this episode proves that almost immediately. In the first part of our hang, Eddy - a swing in Hamilton on Broadway - opens up about how he almost became a doctor and how at first his mother didn't approve of dancing as a career choice. Don't worry, all is well now, but his story is definitely one that may sound familiar to other aspiring artists out there. Hamilton House Party...

Get ready to become OBSESSED with Anna-Lee Craig, one of Hamilton Broadway's team of groundbreaking sound experts. Anna-Lee's official title is A2/Assistant Sound, but I've also added Badass Lady because she is awesome. Having been with Hamilton since The Public, Anna-Lee knows how to make each and every performance sound its best. I mean, she came up with a special microphone design the crew calls the ALC Special.
