Hamilton's latest #Ham4Ham show features ASL cover of 'Cabinet Battle #2'

Sarah Tubert made waves earlier this week with her stunning ASL cover of the opening number from Hamilton, and now, Hamilton itself has followed suit. On Wednesday, the show’s official Twitter account posted the latest digital #Ham4Ham performance, featuring cast members and members of the New York Deaf Theatre covering “Cabinet Battle #2.”

As cast members sing and rap the song’s lyrics in the background, Deaf actors perform them in ASL. The song, from Act 2 of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s blockbuster musical, dramatizes debates within George Washington’s cabinet about whether the fledgling United States should intervene in the French Revolution.

Live #Ham4Ham shows officially ended back in August, but the company still occasionally posts digital versions like these.
