It's the first anniversary of the one, the only, the legendary HAM4CHANGE! On August 15, 2020, the original cast of Hamilton wrapped up their exclusive 3-day reunion event series live on Looped where they connected with us fans on a whole. new. level. After getting a closer look into the behind-the-scenes moments and never-before-told stories from the cast, we ALL felt like part of the Ham Fam!
Cast members joined in the party from all over the globe to connect with us in real time during this legendary event series (and yes, everyone was just as inspiring and talented as they are in the show. Periodt). I’m talkin’ Daveed Diggs, Anthony Ramos, Leslie Odom Jr., Jonathan Groff, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Phillipa Soo to name juuuust a few icons. We learned *SO* much from Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tommy Kail about what it takes to develop a Tony-award winning musical and become rhyming geniuses (and apparently, expert coattail flippers).
We played games, had dance parties, enjoyed a round of HamIdol, played trivia, asked our burning questions, reminisced on iconic fashion moments, shared untold secrets from the theater, and soooo much more during this too-good-to-be-true event series (but spoiler alert: it was true!). Lin even showed off his mad freestyle skills, and it was nothing short of genius as per usual. Here’s a representation of how it felt to score a front row seat to these *UNBELIEVABLE* events:
From the live tell-all events to the backstage meet and greets with over 35 cast members, HAM4CHANGE raised over $1.1 million dollars for nine non-profit organizations working to fight racial injustice and end systemic racism in America. Going down as one of the most epic events in Looped history to date, it’s safe to say we ALL wish we could go back to HAM4CHANGE <3
