Cut Hamilton Tune: I have This Friend

This was my first draft of the song before The Reynolds Pamphlet. With Hamilton & Washington. I don't think I even showed it to Tommy Kail. It would go where Hurricane is now. Stay safe out there. Love you.

This One's Mine--Helpless First Draft

I wrote this song about Eliza meeting Hamilton. I played it for my wife. She said, "Eh. It's good, but it doesn't feel like your final draft." I stormed off. HOW DARE SHE? An hour later, I wrote Helpless. She was right.

14. Nonstop, first draft

Nonstop, first draft

The first time I wrote Non-Stop, it was much more Burr-centric, without regard to the other plot threads I had put in motion. So actual Hamilton quotes in the place of his raps, incorrect Federalist Paper math, and a HUGE time leap at the end. (I wrote this in Nevis, by the way.)Enjoy!

15. I'm Out--Cut In The Heights Tune

I'm Out--Cut In The Heights Tune

This was a song I wrote for Lincoln, Nina Rosario's (now extinct) brother in a 2005 draft of In The Heights. The setup: Kevin is handing him the keys to the family business, but Lincoln wants to be a songwriter. That's me singing, Alex Lacamoire on keys.
