Can’t get enough of Hamilton? Disney+ has you covered: The Broadway show’s debut on the streaming service this Friday, July 3, will be accompanied by the behind-the-scenes documentary Hamilton In-Depth With Kelley Carter, EW.com reports.
Produced by The Undefeated, ESPN+ and Disney+, the doc will feature a virtual roundtable conversation between journalist Carter and Hamilton director Thomas Kail, creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda and performers Daveed Diggs, Leslie Odom Jr., Christopher Jackson, Phillipa Soo and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
“The cast of Hamilton didn’t come to play. They are accomplished performers who created genre-shifting art, but they also understand this unprecedented time in history and why their voices matter,” Carter said in a statement. “This special isn’t just about one of the most important pieces of work to ever play on Broadway. This is about how art inspires activation. And, well, how activation inspires great art.”
