Over 4th of July weekend, Disney+ began streaming the filmed performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton. The musical premiered on January 20, 2015 at the Public Theater in New York City. The filmed stage production was compiled from several night’s performances.

Did you notice the Bullet?

“There's a semi-secret character in Hamilton. One dancer in every production -- it's Ariana DeBose in the film -- plays The Bullet. She's never introduced as such, but the actions she takes are those that that signify death. She steps close to cast members who are about to die, hands Burr his quill when he challenges Hamilton to the fatal duel, and whizzes by Hamilton when his death is mentioned or suggested, playing a special role, of course, in his last moments.”
