Ham4Ham is back with another special edition celebrating Broadway's newest shows!
The series was revived for a second time this month outside of the Richard Rodgers Theatre May 19 to celebrate the Broadway productions of A Doll's House, Kimberly Akimbo, and Camelot.
Stars Jessica Chastain, Arian Moayed, Bonnie Milligan, Phillipa Soo, and company members from Kimberly Akimbo and Camelot joined host Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast of Broadway's Hamilton to perform a series of songs, including Milligan performing "Better" from Kimberly Akimbo, an a cappella rendition of "Camelot" by the Lerner and Loewe revival's ladies in waiting, and a mashup of Camelot's "The Lusty Month of May" and "Take A Break" from Hamilton as performed by the Camelot company, including Hamilton's original Eliza, Phillipa Soo.
Watch the complete performance below.
Also at the May 19 performance, Miranda announced that there will be three additional performances May 26, June 2, and June 9 to celebrate the nominees for Best Musical and Best Revival ahead of the June 11 Tony Awards. All Ham4Hams will be presented on the steps of the Richard Rodgers Theatre beginning at 4 PM ET. It is unclear if the program will include the nominees for Best Revival of a Play, in light of Chastain and Moayed's presence. It is expected, however, that the three upcoming concerts will include Into The Woods, Parade, Some Like It Hot, Shucked, New York, New York, and & Juliet.
The outdoor impromptu concert series Ham4Ham was a mainstay of the megamusical Hamilton in the year following its starry 2015 premiere on Broadway, with composer and star Miranda greeting hopefuls in line for each performance's discount ticket lottery with a performance on the steps of the theatre, sometimes improvised, and often including guests from their neighboring shows.
