Cast of Characters
James Monroe: James is a kind man who is known for his diplomatic skills. He is distinguished and walks with the presence of a gentleman. He constantly tries to find solutions to problems. He has an easy sense of humor but when pushed, he will defend his honor or that of a lady. He has a dark history with Hamilton that may be his undoing.
Thomas Jefferson: (This role has been pre-cast.) Thomas is a bigger-than-life character with a warped sense of humor. He hates Hamilton, is confident in his opinion, and some say he can be arrogant. He likes a battle of wits and is logical and precise when he argues. He is very flirtatious and hasn’t met a woman he doesn’t like. He is currently the President of the United States.
James Reynolds: James is a classic male chauvinist. He is self-centered and treats women like property. He uses everyone around him for his own personal gain and is quick to sell them out to protect his own skin. He takes what he wants and blames others for his misfortunes. He used to be married to Maria Reynolds.
Eliza Hamilton: Eliza is the fairy tale description of a lady. She was a Schuyler before she married Hamilton. She is always in control of her emotions. She fights with her mind, is proper with the gentlemen, is well-educated, and believes in justice. Angelica is her older sister. Their relationship is very close. They share everything – or do they?
Angelica Schuyler: Angelica is the oldest of the Schuyler sisters. She is witty and charming and very flirtatious. She enjoys talking to men and manipulating them. She is very savvy when it comes to politics and diplomacy. She is logical in her reasoning and enjoys a good debate!
Maria Reynolds: Maria is a strong woman who has been a victim of men for many years. She has some education and pretends to naïve. This allows her to listen and learn. Over the last few years, she has been on her own and is slowly finding her own voice.
