Inside Broadway’s Secret Laboratory: ‘Hamilton,’ ‘Frozen,’ and So Much More | NYT

“Hold the elevator.” “Hello.” “Hi.” “Hello.” “What’s going on?” “Good morning, everyone.” “Tell the guards to open up the gate.” “For the first time in forever —” “The gate — If you start it
on the gate —” “O.K., great.” “It feels like your step back actually makes those
gates open.” “Amazing.” “If we wait, somehow they’re running — Then you feel like, it’s an adjustment, as opposed to — yeah yeah.” “— the first time.” “For the first time in forever…” “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” “Money makes the man.” “Money makes the man.” “You’ve got a better plan.” “Money makes the man.” “Money makes the man.” “Money makes the man.” “Can he say other than —” “Going up.” “Uh —” “And you blow into it here,
right?” “I have —” “’cause that’s supposed to be cut off.” “Oh yeah, that is —” “Uh —” “It’s a right-handed one.” “It’s a right-handed one!” “That’s the problem.” “Some people claim that there’s a — one, two, three, one, two, three blame, boom, boom, but I know —” “Some people claim that
there’s a woman to blame.” “Thank you!” “Awesome, guys.” “Get that out of here.” “Oh my god.” “There’s nothin’ like summer in the city Someone in a rush next to
someone lookin’ pretty Excuse me, miss, I know it’s not funny But your perfume smells like
your daddy’s got money Why you slummin’ in the city
in your fancy heels You searchin’ for an urchin

  1. Here's an annotated guide to the video:

  2. my sister didnt realize that the original cast of hamilton left a while ago. She assumed lin was "absent that day" im literally dying of laughter oml

  3. This video is awesome. The narrative, the editing, thank you inspiring people everyday!

  4. To the people who don't get the "this used to be the NYT now it's yahoo" thing, the New York Times moved into a brand new shiny building built for them a few blocks away from this historic one they spent a century in. Their new building is pretty swanky if not much to look at but overall an upgrade, so yahoo's kinda moved into their dated leftovers.

  5. Angelica, Eliza- *pauses video* Mind:*Omg that’s my name!!* *plays video* and Peggy…..*WOAH*

  6. “He kills Alexander Hamilton” I love how casually salty that is

  7. Highschool theatre kids, take everything you can out of it. Enjoy it.

  8. I really like the song at 2:09 but I can't seem to find the song…… Can someone tell me what it's called?

  9. This is all just one building?!? It’s…it’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of

  10. Anyone know the name of the actress that plays Eliza Schulyer (Hamilton) in this video?

  11. You get a better inkling of the sheer stamina these professionals have.

    Can you imagine these guys breaking into song over cronuts? Boy howdy, I sure can.

  12. hehe i love the “ohhh my-y-y-y god!” lil riff thingy when the actors get cronuts at like 4:40

  13. “Jimmy Buffet wrote this song in six minutes”. Sounds like it… maybe I need to hear the full song

  14. I think I’ve seen this video like 6 different times. Youtube always recommends it to me, and I always watch it!! I’d love a sequel!

  15. I know the girl that plays Anna and Matilda I was just hanging out with her today

  16. When I walked out that shiny door on to 42nd Street, every day of rehearsal of a special production of Ragtime ( – I played Grandfather), I had the strangest feeling I was leaving the real world upstairs and walking out into a monochrome world where nothing mattered as much as what I had just experienced. Rehearsing side by side with performers of such awesome talent, directed by production people at the top of their game was the realization of something I had wanted all my life. Performing the show was wonderful . . . but rehearsals are the real joyful work. Rehearsals, seeing marks on paper rise up off the page and become alive, changing, polishing until it's perfect, that's the best part of being a performer.

  17. I cannot express how much I love this😍😍😍 I'm in theatre and it makes me happy just to watch others rehearse and get to see "behind the scenes" things!!
    It's soooooo cool🤗


  19. Why am I not surprised that even Broadway has succumbed to the factory mentality? It explains the absence of innovation and creativity… Hamilton May be PC, but it is overrated because it is formulaic

  20. I'm not sure if I like this or not. Perhaps I'll finish watching it first, then make up my mind. Then if I don't like it, re-watch it. Because, for some unknown reason, I think I'm supposed to enjoy this video.

  21. “He kills alexander hamilton”

  22. So excited to someday (hopefully) work in this industry!!

    Also, cronuts are SO good. 😌

  23. I actually saw frozen and wicked this summer! I wish I could see Hamilton so bad!

  24. "He grew up on a farm in wyoming"

    And now he's singin' and dancin' in one of the biggest musicals of all time. That's kinda awesome.

  25. 4:46 I just saw Hamilton like a month ago and it was ausome! Like it was the same people shown here and I loved it! 1,000,000% recommend

  26. Wow, that was AWESOME!! oh my lord I loved all of that. Musical Theatre is a passion of mine and I loved that!!

  27. Fun fact: My Drama teacher was in The Wizard of Oz and she understudied for The Wicked Witch of the West, and the director's wife, plays Eliza in Hamilton. So thats her correlation to Hamilton!
