Phillipa Soo Talks How ‘Hamilton’ Is A Mirror To The Current Social And Cultural Movement
In the Tony Award-winning musical Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda plays the founding father of the title who takes the spotlight, but let’s face it, Phillipa Soo’s Eliza Schuyler should take just as much of that spotlight because as Alexander Hamilton’s wife, she was the only one that could put him in his place. She stole his heart, supported him through his political journey and even after he cheated on her, she taught him a harsh lesson of love on being a real husband, father and man.
Soo played the original Eliza Schuyler when it hit Broadway alongside Miranda as well as Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, Anthony Ramos, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Christopher Jackson, Okieriete Onaodowan and Jasmine Cephas Jones. As we all know, it garnered an uproarious ovation as tickets were selling for thousands of dollars. More than that, it became a cultural movement and a watershed moment for inclusive casting and storytelling.
