Stage Directions • Theatre Buzz • February 21, 2020

In this Backstage Video from Adam Savage’s Tested, Savage goes backstage of the San Francisco production of Hamilton The Musical at San Francisco’s Orpheum Theatre. He gets a tour of the props from Mike Eickmeyer, Prop Master Hamilton, SF. Eickmeyer takes Savage around the stage and lets him examine a range of props, from King George’s scepter to Hamilton’s dueling pistols.

There have been a range of prop artisans who worked on Hamilton, including Proptologist and Resident Properties Master, Jay Duckworth who worked on the original production at The Public Theater, and Prop Artisan and Fabricator, Zoe Morsette, one of the prop artisans who supplies paper props and glasses to the show. (Daedalus and Jerard Studios are the other two prop studios that supply Hamilton.) Hamilton is playing at the Orpheum through the end of May, 2020.
