Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. has shared a superb theory on his character, Aaron Burr.
The hit musical sold out countless shows on the West End and Broadway. Now, the musical is available to stream on Disney+, sparking up new conversations from fans.
Speaking with MSNBC, Odom Jr has shared his personal theory on Burr and the fact that he is the narrator of the story.
“I would think of it like purgatory, like Burr’s purgatory,” he explained. “He didn’t know what it was that he had to learn. So he’s gonna come out here tonight and tell the story one more time.”
“And if he could just figure out where it went wrong, if he could just find the moment where it went wrong. And he could say, ‘Ah, there it is. Here’s where I made the mistake. Here’s where I should have stopped it.’
“If he could just figure that thing out then he could move on.”
We don’t know about you, but for us, this theory changes everything. And on that note, we are heading over to Disney+ for another rewatch.
