DENVER (AP) — Christopher Jackson, who played George Washington in Lin-Manuel Miranda's “Hamilton" on Broadway, will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Tuesday night's All-Star Game at Coors Field.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Daveed Diggs was sorting through the many TV offers coming his way a few years ago when, as the Tony Award-winning actor puts it, “there was a lot of ’Hamilton’ fairy dust attached to me.”
