Video: Hamilton Cast to Perform in The GRAMMYs

[ Written on February 03 2016 by Francesca ]

The ceremony, set to air live from Los Angeles’Staples Center on Feb. 15, will feature a performance from the critically celebrated smash hit Hamilton, live from the Richard Rodgers Theatrein New York.

Says Lin-Manuel Miranda, the musical’s creator and star: “We’re going to do the opening number, scream with joy, and then celebrate the fact that we were just on the Grammys. Best night ever.”

Like the majority of Broadway productions, Hamilton — also a nominee, through its original cast recording, for best musical theater album — is generally dark Monday nights. But a live audience will be at the Richard Rodgers for the special occasion, the first time a Broadway performance will be broadcast via satellite. This is the eighth time a musical-theater production has been featured on the Grammys, but in the past the performers joined the Grammy broadcasts onstage. (American Idiot was the most recent showcased, in 2010.)

“We’ve never done any live performances in front of a televised audience,” notesHamilton producer Jeffrey Seller. “It’s always been important for us to perform in context. Once (Grammy executives) said, ‘We’ll come to you,’ we knew it would work.” Seller also credits Atlantic Records, which in September released the cast recording of Hamilton: “Our friends at Atlantic have lobbied the folks at the Grammys since day one.” [source]
