Dean sat down with three actors from the highly-anticipated Chicago production of Hamilton. First, fresh-faced actor Jose Ramos from Chicago’s very own Logan Square tells Dean about how excited he is to come home and be part of such a highly anticipated show. Broadway veteran Wallace Smith also chimed in about his experience so far. Then, the newly ordained Hamilton, Miguel Cervantes talked to Dean about the pressure of filling the shoes of Lin Manuel Miranda and how he is going to make the character his own.
