‘Hamilton’ cast members reunite to open SAG Awards ceremony


Hamilton stars Daveed Diggs, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Leslie Odom Jr. are set to reunite on stage later this month.

The three actors will be performing as part of the opening number for the 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, taking place on February 27, reports Variety.

Last year, Diggs earned a SAG nomination for his performance in the Disney+ recording of Hamilton, while Odom Jr. was nominated for two awards, including one for One Night In Miami.

Miranda recently made his feature directorial debut with Tick, Tick… Boom! which earned a SAG nomination for its lead actor, Andrew Garfield.

In a five-star review of Hamilton‘s Disney+ recording, NME wrote: “A period drama that obsesses over legacy, Hamilton changed the game when it first hit the stage and now this bold, brilliant and daring filmed version is set to do it all over again.”
