Broadway News Hamilton to Revive Ham4Ham for Special Sweeney Todd Performance

The musical's "show before the show" series will attend the tale later this week.

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Josh Groban in Sweeney Todd

Hamilton is set to revive its special Ham4Ham concert series outside the Richard Rodgers Theatre this Friday, May 5, at 4 PM.

The outdoor impromptu concert series was a mainstay of the megamusical in the year following its starry premiere on Broadway, with composer/star Lin-Manuel 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.

This Friday, Sweeney Todd will join in on the action, with star Josh Groban expected to participate. Miranda announced the revival on his Instagram, stating that they were "cookin' up a little something with our (Tony Nominated!) neighbors on 46th Street like the old days." It is likely that this will be a one-time revival of the series and not a full reboot.

Sweeney Todd is a particular favorite of Miranda's, who even went so far as to write a parody homage to the Sondheim musical for the 2017 Broadway Cares Easter Bonnet Competition.

To attend the performance, all one has to do is congregate outside of the Richard Rodgers; no ticket necessary! We at Playbill recommend, however, coming early, as space may be at a premium.
