Can we just talk about this shirt though? This is amazing!


You guys


This makes me so happy!





Hamilton in the house! This is the city of Michael in the city of New York. Interviewing one of your favorite girls from Hamilton the Musical! This is Jasmine Cephas Jones!'


Hi!


Peggy and Maria aka Paria. Does anyone call you Paria?


Oh my god. Lin and I made that up like, when we were-or no, it was Tommy Kail, Tommy Kail who's the director. We were walking and I was like in Peggy's costume but I had my like Maria red lip on and he was like "Paria!" and it was like a thing.


Can you in one word tell me about the last year of your life?

Insane. Jut absolutely insane. It's like more than a dream come true. It's an amazing opportunity and I'm just so bless to be apart of it


Did you anticipate it? Did you feel it when you first got you're hands on the script or first heard the music?


When I first heard the music my jaw like dropped to the floor and I was like "What the hell is this?" And I like knew it was something special right from the beginning but I had no idea it was gonna be like this like what it is now


I don't know, I guess we should say if you don't know Hamilton the musical, our apologies for your life and your ears, and your soul, like Google "Hamilton The Musical"


There's so much information about it just like put Hamilton the musical on the


It's basically the musical of the millennium.
Take me through the highs and lows of the audition process.


Okay so...I wasn't in the workshop but I was in the set for the public downtown. I was like one of the last people to come on to the project. My first audition I actually like stumbled on my words because I was so nervous.


You were human!


Yes I was human! And I messed up twice! Um, and in front of the casting director but she was like "You are so right for this role and I want you to come back and I want you to do it again." So I did it for Tommy Kail, our director, and our musical director, Alex Lacamoire and I was in the room for like fourty minutes. Just like, Tommy was directing me. Lac, we call him Lac, he was actually teaching me the Peggy part cause there was no music for that, so he was writing down the lyrics and teaching me like the melody. I guess they were seeing if I could play like completely two different characters. Like a young, innocent, Peggy, and a very not innocent Maria Reynolds.

I think you figured it out. I think the team kinda figured it all out.
If Whitney Houston had a baby with Barbra Streisand that's what I see in you!


Ahh!! Oh my god, that's amazing!


You know what I mean?


Yeah, I mean sure, I mean yes. That's awesome.


Because there's like soul, there's jazz, there's like training-


Yes


There's obviously like this god gi-


Yeah. No, I've grown up listening to like everybody under the sun. I mean my first concert, my first big, big concert when I was fourteen was Prince.


Mm. And I saw you were just-Full circle!

Yeah, full circle Prince came to the show. He gave an after party and we went, and he like performed and I was like living my purple life. Just so hard. Barbra Streisand was another one. Yeah. Yeah. She was like "Where did you come from!" It was amazing.


Are you like writing everything down? Are you like keeping track of everything?


Oh man! I should. It's all in my head though.


You need to remember that Barbra Streisand took a moment to say "Welcome to our universe of greatness, young child"


Yes. She-She also said to me, which I will-I will never forget is she said, "Your tone and your phrasing," she was like, "is beautiful." And like to me, as a singer, the tone and the phrasing like that's what it's all about. I told my mom and I told my mom in the kitchen and she like fell on the floor. So it's just been amazing


Can you take me through like a ten second Jasmine vocal warm up?



Something like that.


I wanna be like you someday! I wanna do that. And Peggy.
You are under the wing of Lin-Manuel. What is that like working with Lin, every day?


What I love about Lin the most even though he's like being superman and like taking over the world. When we perform with him that's when he can let go of everything and is just Lin. He's just the other actor. He's not the writer, he's just the actor with you on stage. And, um, that's what I love about Lin and we like freestyle, like before we're about to go on like in the wings. Like just do like stupid stuff backstage and be silly. He's so funny and he's so down to earth. And he's just a regular guy who has like an amazing brain.


Yes.


Yeah.


He's just a walking Einstein.


Yeah. Seriously, yes.


So we know you as Peggy Schuyler.


Yes.


We know you as Maria.


Yeah.


Is that hard for you as an actress? Like what happens at intermission for you?


So like for Peggy, what I love about it is I'm so close with Pippa and Renee, who play my two other Schuyler Sisters. And like we're literally having so much fun for the first act, it's like acting but we're not really acting. Everytime we look at each other we're just like "We love you so much!", you know like. Even before "Schuyler Sisters" backstage we like do a little dance, you know like get ready to go on something like this. And then for Maria like, the costume, Paul Tazewell designed. He did all the costumes. I have this amazing bright red dress So I'm literally like on fire! Which just like helps the character so much. And then like right before I go on I take like a minute to myself and kinda like breathe in deep and close my eyes and then go on.


Do you think the Schuyler Sisters could to adopt a brother, Michael.


Michael. Sure. Yes. Of course. Why not.


Because I hear like "And Peggy" and I kinda do like a-


Michael!


And Michael!


We could-We could do that. We could work that part in.


Maybe for like the tour or something down the line.


Down the line.
