Daveed Diggs is my favorite actor in Hamilton. He plays the character that I love the most, and the character that I love to hate the most. The moment he comes into his own when he is rapping on the table as Marquis de Lafayette in Guns and Ships? So powerful.
Daveed’s performance in the second act as Thomas Jefferson is nothing short of stellar. There is something strangely positive about seeing a slaveowner be portrayed by a black man. He is pretty easy to look at in any light, but I prefer the glow of a pumpkin!
