For the final instalment of this series, host Giles Terera is joined by the actors who played the Sons of Liberty in the original West End cast of Hamilton: Tarinn Callender (Hercules Mulligan/James Madison), Jason Pennycooke (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Cleve September (John Laurens/Philip Hamilton), Obioma Ugoala (George Washington), and Jamael Westman (Alexander Hamilton). They had so much to talk about that we're splitting this conversation into two episodes, with Part Two coming next week.
Tune in to Part One to hear about the Sons' audition experiences (and what to do if your Mum thinks you should actually be going up for a different role), when to go to the toilet during the show, what it was like to transition between two different characters, 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.
