According to Variety, original cast members Lin-Manuel Miranda, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Daveed Diggs, Jonathan Groff, Javier Muñoz, Christopher Jackson, Leslie Odom Jr, Okieriete Onaodowa, and Phillipa Soo will all be in attendance. Moreover, Thomas Kail, director of the recently released film Hamilton on Disney Plus, will be essaying the role of the moderator of the question and answer session with the cast. This will be followed by the special performance.

The report added how Hamilton creator and star Miranda had earlier taken part in a phone bank event for the Democrat candidate on 6 October.

Fans and supporters will be able to donate any amount of money to the fund during or before the event by visiting the website. According to the site, “Anything you donate will be used to elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Democrats up and down the ballot.” The lowest donation amount has been set at $25. But the payment will be possible only if a person is a US citizen or a lawfully admitted permanent resident and at least 18 years old.
