‘Hamilton’ film amplified ticket demand, Lin-Manuel Miranda says

Filming “Hamilton” and distributing it on Disney+ did not diminish demand for the Broadway musical, it amplified it, mentioned creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Over the many years, Broadway showrunners have shied away from creating filmed copies of fashionable exhibits, fearing that making the manufacturing too accessible would imply fewer ticket gross sales.

“It without end demolishes the concept that a superbly shot model of your present diminishes the demand to see it stay,” Miranda advised CNBC’s Sara Eisen in a taped interview that aired Wednesday. “In all of our estimations, it is solely amplified the demand to see ‘Hamilton’ stay.”

The “Hamilton” movie, which was shot in 2016 with the unique solid, was initially slated to reach in theaters in 2021, however when the pandemic hit, Disney launched the movie on July 4, 2020, on its streaming service.

Miranda portrayed Alexander Hamilton as a part of the unique solid alongside Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr), Renee Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler), Daveed Diggs (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Phillipa Soo (Eliza Hamilton), Christopher Jackson (George Washington) and Jonathan Groff (King George).

The movie was directed by Tommy Kail (“Fosse/Verdon” and “Grease: Reside”).

Miranda conceded that it may be costly for Broadway exhibits to movie their performances, noting that his staff paid to seize the musical in order that they might protect the unique solid performances on tape.

“That is a win for theater,” Miranda mentioned. “To have extra professional photographs, to have these out on the earth, I feel is a win. I might like to see extra of that going ahead.”
