I have recently come down with a very infectious disease. It is taking over my life and I do not know what to do about it. It is really affecting my personal and professional relationships. You see, this condition came in to my life a few weeks ago when I watched a video on Buzzfeed and have been addicted ever since.
That video was the 2016 Miscast Broadway performance of “The Schuyler Sisters” from Hamilton, performed by Luca Padovan (School of Rock), Joshua Colley (Les Misérables), and Douglas Baldeo (Kinky Boots).
These three boys shocked everyone in attendance when they absolutely slayed this masterpiece. They killed the vocals and nailed the choreography. Moreover, the acting was spot-on. It was an astonishing feat for three very young performers, ending in a standing ovation.
According to Buzzfeed, the Miscast Broadway Gala is an annual event in which Broadway stars perform scenes for roles in which they would never be cast. In this scenario, these three young boys performed as song originally performed by three fully-grown woman.
Hamilton is the newest Broadway smash hit written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
So please, if you have yet to see this amazing performance by three very talented children, check it out below.
