A group of Mercy Home’s young people recently had a very special “Hamilton” experience, thanks to our Associate Board member and tutor Matt Yanover and “Hamilton” cast member Akron Watson. After Matt connected us to Akron, he arranged for tickets to be donated so that our young people would have the opportunity to see the show.
The experience was made even more special when Akron, who plays Aaron Burr, was joined by fellow cast members Andrew Call, who plays King George, Tamar Greene, who plays George Washington, Jamaal Fields-Green, who plays Philip Hamilton and John Laurens, Auban Wise, who plays Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds, and other ensemble members for a talkback after the show. Our kids had to opportunity to ask the cast members questions and chat with them.
Everyone had a great time at the show, and we are so thankful to Matt, Akron, and the cast of “Hamilton” for giving our kids such a special theater experience!
