HAMILTON's Lin-Manuel Miranda Shares a Scene Not on the Cast Album

HAMILTON's Lin-Manuel Miranda Shares a Scene Not on the Cast Album

Lin-Manuel Miranda took to his Tumblr account today to give some fans a scene from Hamilton that doesn't appear on the cast album.

When a preview of the cast album of Hamilton was released early on Monday via NPR.com, fans went insane listening to it a whole four days before it become available for digital download. Fans who have seen the show noticed that there was one scene that was not recorded and put on the cast album.

The scene that was ommitted from the album would come between "Dear Theodosia" and "Non Stop" and includes one of the few moments with the character of Laurens. Check out what Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote to his devoted Hamilton fans on Tumblr saying:

"I made this for you today. It's the scene in Hamilton that goes between "Dear Theodosia" and "Non Stop." I made a decision not to record this scene on the album, for two reasons 1) It really is more of a scene than a song, the only SCENE in our show, and I think its impact is at its fullest in production form. 2) As someone who grew up ONLY listening to cast albums (we ain't have money for a lot of Broadway shows, like most people) those withheld moments were REVELATIONS to me when I finally experienced them onstage, years later. Hamilton is sung through, and I wanted to have at least ONE revelation in store for you. I stand by the decision, and I think the album is better for it.

I know, I know. "But what about people who won't get the chance to see it..." I know. "And Laurens is already so underrepresented in history..." I KNOW. THAT'S WHY HE'S SO PROMINENT IN THE SHOW. So here's where we meet in the middle. The missing scene is above. Please understand that the reason I left this scene off the album is precisely BECAUSE I value it (and Laurens) so much. Happy #Hamiltunes listening, Tumblrico. This is your extra credit reading. Yr Obd Serv, Lin-Manuel "
