Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"John Adams Rap" Cut from Hamilton (Lin-Manuel Miranda and Cast)
Ulterior Motives: It's the start of #HamilWeek here at BroadwayBox celebrating Hamilton's premiere on Disney+ and we're kicking it off with a song from the Hamilton cutting room floor. According to the show's YouTube channel, Lin and company performed this cut song detailing Alexander Hamilton's potential response to a comment by John Adams during a post-show talkback onstage at Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: We don't know which cast member is more excited this performance is happening, Lin or Renée. Her joy, excitement and dancing is so infectious! There are rhythm patterns in this song that mirror "Guns and Ships" at 0:26 - 0:31 and throughout. Our ultimate moment though without a doubt is at 0:55 - 1:04 when Renée jumps for joy out of her chair and Daveed Diggs gets up and walks around his own.
