Instead, the film is a sort of hybrid: fired from the stage beginning in 2016 the two live Broadway shows and closed set of interpretations of songs. Thomas Kail, the director of the stage production and the film wanted to give the show exciting energy, while character-driven zoom in more tranquil times. The result, he hopes “to figure out a way to way to give the audience what it was like to be Richard Rogers Theater in June 2016” offers, tells TIME.

Before filming Hamilton says Kail gave clear instructions to his occupation, nor earned a film-specific sample. “I said the same thing I told them I would say on another show, ‘No more, no less. You know what you’re doing,'” recalls Kail. “By combining molecular era. I have not needed to lead at this point.” “It took very little preparing for them,” said Soo. “All I asked of myself, especially since I was so exhausted at that point was just to show, and let pass me the story.” Kail used a variety of techniques for the show Declain Quinn Hamilton to shoot director of photography, head mounted three cameras, then put six cameraman at the Richard Rogers Theater.
