Meet the ‘Hamilton’ actors who fly cross-country and play up to 18 roles in the hit show

On a recent Saturday morning, Broadway actress Jennie Harney was awakened by a phone call with a voice on the other end asking, “How do you feel about an adventure today?”

A few hours later, she was at a New York airport. That evening, she was in San Francisco, ready to go on stage, if needed, as one of the three Schuyler sisters in “Hamilton.”

This is the life of a universal standby in “Hamilton,” the musical based on the life of U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton. The show has five universal actors ready to fly cross-country and perform in any of its three productions, in New York, Chicago and San Francisco, whenever a regular cast member can’t go on.
