For the final #Ham4Ham, the weekly impromptu mini concerts on the steps of the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where Hamilton is playing, host Rory O'Malley gave fans a special treat. Tony winner Renée Elise Goldsberry, who is wrapping up her final week in Hamilton in the role of Angelica Schuyler, sang “Congratulations,” a song written for the show by composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, but cut from the score.
A truncated version of the song remains, but Goldsberry sang the complete version with O’Malley singing the part of Alexander Hamilton. They were accompanied by Alex Lacamoire and members of the show's orchestra.
The August 31 #Ham4Ham was the last regularly scheduled live installment in a series that began in July 2015. It's also the last in-person lottery at the theatre. The lottery is now run completely online.
