Hamilton Prop Fact | Dueling Pistols

Jay Duckworth • Theatre Buzz • June 28, 2020

The digital capture of the Broadway version of Hamilton is coming to Disney+ on July 3, 2020. Proptologist, Stage Directions Contributing Writer, and Professor Jay Duckworth created the props for the original production when it started out at The Public Theater. He has created a series of Prop Facts about key props in Hamilton and we’ll be sharing them all week in the run up to the July 3rd premiere. Here’s Number Two, Dueling Pistols.

“Currently, there are 9 of the retired dueling pistols out in the world,” says Duckworth. One that was auctioned off for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDs, one I gave to to our Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis, and one to our Head of Production.”
