Hamilton Prop Fact | Burr’s Pamphlet

Jay Duckworth • Theatre Buzz • July 3, 2020

Today is the day of the premiere of Hamilton on Disney+, so here’s today’s Hamilton Prop Fact from Proptologist, Stage Directions Contributing Writer, and Professor Jay Duckworth. He created the props for the original production of Hamilton when it started out at The Public Theater and has created this series of Prop Facts about key props in Hamilton. Duckworth and Stage Directions has been sharing them all week in the run up to the July 3rd premiere of the Broadway version of Hamilton coming to Disney+. Here’s Number 7, the Burr’s pamphlets from Act 2, Scene 46:

Something as simple as a font choice and readable text may make, or break, a prop. Once again, this is a great example of no detail is too small!
