Ladies and gentlemen, the moment you’ve been waiting for: George Washington. In this episode, host Giles Terera speaks to the one and only Christopher Jackson, who originated the role of America’s first President in the original New York production of Hamilton. Tune in to hear about three significant moments in which Chris impacted Giles’ own Hamilton journey, how it took another show closing early for Chris to be in the original production at all, what it means to be in a leadership role in a cast, and much more.

Hamilton and Me: An Actor's Journal by Giles Terera – his account of researching, rehearsing and performing as Aaron Burr in the original London production of smash-hit musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda – is published on 1 July by Nick Hern Books.
