The hit musical features the character of Alexander and Eliza Hamilton’s oldest son, Phillip, played by Anthony Ramos. But, as the musical's writer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda informed the fans at the lottery, the real-life Hamiltons had a total of eight children — whose stories were then told by a group of young actors including former Fun Home cast member and Tony nominee Sydney Lucas and current cast members Gabriella Pizzolo, Oscar Williams, Alessandra Baldacchino, Presley Ryan and Zell Steele Morrow, with a nod to The Sound of Music.
“That’s a lot of kids!” Phillipa Soo, who plays Eliza Hamilton, chimed in, before beatboxing for the performance.
