Meanwhile, Miranda has spoken about censorship of the musical as it prepares to launch on Disney+.
He said on Twitter: “LANGUAGE! 1. On July 3, you’re getting the whole show, every note & scene, & a 1-minute countdown clock during intermission (bathroom!)
“2. But MPAA has a hard rule about language: more than 1 utterance of “F**k” is an automatic R rating. We have 3 “F**ks” in our show. So I literally gave two f**ks so the kids could see it:
“1. In Yorktown, there’s a mute over “I get the f___ back up again”
“2. “Southern *record scratch*kin’ Democratic Republicans.”
“You can sing whatEVER you like at home (even sync up the album)! Love you. Enjoy.”
Alongside Miranda, the cast features Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson; Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler; Jonathan Groff as King George; Christopher Jackson as George Washington; Jasmine Cephas Jones as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds; Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr; Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison; Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton; and Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton.
