Hamilton Prop Facts | #SaveTheArts

Jay Duckworth • Theatre Buzz • July 6, 2020

For the past week, Proptologist, Stage Directions Contributing Writer, and Professor Jay Duckworth has been creating Hamilton Prop Facts about key props that were created for Hamilton. He created the props for the original production of Hamilton when it started out at The Public Theater.  Duckworth and Stage Directions shared them all last week in celebration of the premiere of the Broadway version of Hamilton now streaming on Disney+. Here’s his last post:

“I would like to thank everyone for their kind words, comments, and questions about the Hamilton Prop Facts that I shared last week. I do believe that ‘Everything I do or make means nothing. It only becomes art when it touches you.’ #SaveTheArts”
