* Renée Elise Goldsberry is nothing to sneeze at either: her rap in "Satisfied" is so fast ( and gives her less opportunities to breathe) that Miranda himself can't pull it off.

* You have to hand it to Daveed Diggs. In his scenes as Lafayette, he raps at about ''eight words per second'', in a French accent, doing choreography that is mostly him leaping and running around, which must be exhausting. Most people would pass out for lack of breath, but he does it like it's easy!

** And then, following that, the final song of the show is almost more about Eliza than it is about her husband, as she declares "I put myself back in the narrative" and spends the last half of the song essentially singing about her accomplishments and her life. There is something very moving about hearing powerful men like Washington, Lafayette, etc, acknowledging that "''she'' tells our story."

When Eliza sings, I speak out against slavery, Washington bows his head and steps back, leaving her at center stage.

Added DiffLines:

* Speaking of Benjamin Franklin; "Cabinet Battle #3" from the Hamilton Mixtape is a dour, sobering song about how Washington and his cabinet failed to end slavery when they could. However, the conflict is over a petition Franklin wrote and signed on behalf of a Quaker delegation asking the slave trade be abolished. This was Franklin's last public act in his lifetime (he would pass away two months after submitting it to Congress), and unlike the rest of the Founding Fathers he passed away with his conscience clean. [[note]]It's important to note that Franklin did own slaves in his younger years, and allowed ads for buying/selling slaves to be printed in his newspapers. Towards the end of his life though he was firmly an abolitionist, and was President of the Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery for a time.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** "I am not throwing away my shot!" becomes even more awesome when paired with "...'til the world turns upside down!"

Added DiffLines:

* Everything about the choreography of "The Reynolds Pamphlet". The company's dancing is totally disorganized and mostly improvised on the spot, the stage is in complete chaos, Burr, Jefferson, and King George dance gleefully and flamboyantly through the disarray and rejoice in the mistake, copies of the pamphlet itself fly everywhere... and in the middle of it all stands Hamilton, who can do nothing but stare at the chaos going on around him. He's literally watching his life fall apart before his eyes. And the lyrics at this point?
--> ''Well, he's never gonna be president now (Never gonna be president now)''\\
''Never gonna be president now (Never gonna be president now)''\\
''Never gonna be president now (Never gonna be president now)''\\
''That's one less thing to worry about! That's one less thing to worry about!''

Added DiffLines:

** Apparently, Miranda cut Ben Franklin from the stage show because he knew ''there was no way he wouldn't steal it''.
