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.

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.
