"We put up the show for Broadway in, like, two-and-a-half weeks… so there was no time," says Hamilton star Leslie Odom, Jr., leaning against the doorframe of his second-floor dressing room at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Inside lays a quaint oasis totaling 70 square feet. Enter interior designer, artist, and performer Mike Harrison, who transformed what he calls "a buttery, yellow room" into a place where Odom could "relax before the show, unwind after the show and be able to entertain and have seating areas for guests."
