Voting Rules
Vote up you think think is most deserving of a shot!

For those of us who never made it to New York and had to subsist on the Hamilton cast recording, it's a real treat to watch the original cast perform the show on Disney+. While every castmember is undeniably talented, what kind of theatre fans would we be if we didn't nitpick who was the MOST talented?

Vote up the cast members who you think are the MVP's of the show. 

  • Daveed Diggs
    3,119 votes

    Role: Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson

    Case for MVP: It's impossible not to look at Diggs when he's on screen. He's got swagger, charm, and amazing footwork. He also wins every cabinet battle, I don't care what the book dictates.

  • Leslie Odom Jr.
    2,794 votes

    Role: Aaron Burr

    Case for MVP: In being both the show's ostensible villian, he's also the hype man, guiding the audience through the entire story. And in addition to that, he also completely destroys "The Room Where It Happened." The man can sing, dance, and convey Burr's growing resentment towards Hamilton, what more do you want?

  • Role: Angelica Schuyler

    Case for MVP: Besides "Satisfied"? What more do you need her to do? She's got powerhouse pipes and perfectly captures Angelica's strength and longing. 

  • Jonathan Groff

    Role: King George III

    Case for MVP: The comic relief of the show, and we're not just talking about the spit that pours from his mouth in the film. He's the camp palate cleanser that the show needed.

  • Phillipa Soo
    2,550 votes

    Role: Eliza Hamilton

    Case for MVP: The heart of the entire show! She's destroys the power ballad "Burn" and then destroys us in "Stay Alive - Reprise." The woman has no mercy but plenty of talent. And a special mention must be made for how she beatboxes in "Take A Break."

  • Lin-Manuel Miranda

    Role: Alexander Hamilton

    Case for MVP: Well, besides writing the music, book, and lyrics he also has the titular role. Is he the best singer or actor in the cast? Probably not, but would there even be a cast without him? Makes you think!
