ou may not have given him much thought until recently, but the guy on the $10 bill has become the most popular Founding Father in the land. His name is Hamilton, and here’s how. It was summer 2007, just before In the Heights moved to Broadway. Playwright-composer Lin-Manuel Miranda was vacationing in Mexico with girlfriend Vanessa Nadal and reading Ron Chernow’s 818-page Alexander Hamilton. Choosing that biography was some sort of crazy fate,


HAPPY

HOMECOMING

Four Hamilton cast members come from Georgia. They are:

• CHRIS De’SEAN LEE (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), who was born in Augusta and raised in Atlanta. He recently completed his junior year at Belmont University in Nashville.

• JEFFERY DUFFY (Ensemble), who has roots in Atlanta’s Adamsville neighborhood. He attended Pebblebrook High School/ Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts and received his B.F.A. from The Juilliard School. In 2017, Dance Magazine named him one of “25 to Watch.”

• JENNIFER GELLER (Ensemble), who grew up in Marietta and attended Pebblebrook High’s CCCEPA. She has performed in regional theater and toured with Bring It On: The Musical.

• HOPE ENDRENYI (Swing), Miranda says. He turned to Nadal at one point and said, “I think this is a great hip-hop musical.” “That sounds cool,” she replied. Manuel and Nadal had known each other since high school, and he held great stock in her opinions, even though she’s not particularly fond of musicals. Her response was all the encouragement he needed. “Can you have Angelica rap?” she asked. “That would be cool.”

who grew up and trained in Marietta. She, too, attended Pebblebrook High’ School’s CCCEPA. She has a B.F.A. in dance from Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

I WOULDN’T BE HERE WITHOUT GRADY. I WAS ON A LADDER AND FELL 20 FEET ONTO A CONCRETE DRIVEWAY. I shattered my wrist and pelvis and was rushed to Grady’s Marcus Trauma Center. Grady is Atlanta’s only nationally verified Level I trauma center so I knew they had the orthopedic expertise to handle my injuries. Dr. William Reisman and his team did an amazing job assessing what the issues were. You don’t see at most places. And that takes experience. That takes training. That takes leadership. All of which are exemplified by the trauma team at Grady. I knew the importance and value of Grady because I trained there. But this was my first chance to see it as a patient, and it was a powerful experience.

Miranda, who has married Nadal since then, spent the next seven years writing the script and score for Hamilton. Nadal came home from work one day and said, “Your king tune was stuck in my head all day. That’s probably a good sign.” She was right. King George’s witty Beatle-esque “You’ll Be Back” became a showstopper for Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff. Miranda, now 38, considers Hamilton a love letter to his wife. “This show simply doesn’t exist without Vanessa,” he says. He calls her the “best of wives and best of women,” just as Hamilton does his wife, Eliza. Julia K. Harriman, who plays Eliza in Atlanta, says the role “is easily the coolest thing to ever happen to me.” BEST OF WIVES, BEST OF WOMEN Harriman, 25, had been working mostly as a singersongwriter and voice-over artist, with little theater experience. She often had trouble getting cast, she says, citing her Asian-Caucasian heritage and look. “I’d go in for a commercial, and they’d try to match me up with parents, but then they couldn’t be convinced that I looked like I could be the child of those parents. I never

TOP: “Look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now!” So sing Eliza, Angelica and Peggy Schuyler. In Atlanta, Julia K. Harriman (above) plays Eliza, Alexander Hamilton’s beloved wife.

saw someone who looked like me.” In Hamilton, that’s an advantage. From the get-go Miranda envisioned a multicultural cast — to represent a nation born to welcome immigrants and to signal America’s diversity today. For her first 10 months in Hamilton, Harriman stood by for the three Schuyler sisters, which meant learning four key roles, a time she calls “terrifying and intense.” She only knew a song or two from the score when she auditioned for Hamilton, and was cast before ever seeing it. ONE HISTORIC DAY IN 2015 … Hamilton opened on Broadway on Aug. 6, 2015, and became an immediate box-office hit and critical favorite. “I am loath to tell people to mortgage their houses and lease their children to acquire tickets to a hit Broadway show,” New York Times critic Ben Brantley wrote. “But Hamilton … might just about be worth it.” Hamilton won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for best musical. It won 11 of the 16 Tony categories in which it was nominated, including direction

(Thomas Kail), leading actor (Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr), featured actress (Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler), featured actor (Daveed Diggs as the Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson), book and score (Miranda), choreography, orchestrations, costumes and lights. The one-of-a-kind musical shows no signs of slowing. Four productions are playing simultaneously around the country, a feat never before accomplished. That means that more than 8,000 people experience Hamilton somewhere in North America each night, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It’s also in London, and Miranda has plans to play Hamilton in Puerto Rico. How to account for this watershed moment in theater history? The words “epic” and “contemporary” come to mind. A MUSICAL FOR NON-MUSICAL LOVERS Hamilton’s theme — the birth of a nation — is likely as big as they get. Among its cast of characters are three presidents, several vice presidents, a king, assorted

U.S. Cabinet members and that scrappy title character introduced as “a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished in squalor …” The show’s up-to-the-minute vibe, multiracial casting, earth-tone design, energetic choreography, layered lyrics and melodic score (incorporating rap, soul, R&B and traditional Broadway sounds) have won over throngs who claim to have never liked musicals before. “The show in New York is different from our show,” Harriman says admiringly, “and our show is different from any of the others.” The freewheeling combinations of 28 diverse cast members “bring a whole new light every single time to this beautiful material and stunning choreography.” Harriman says she enjoys meeting and chatting with kids who see Hamilton as part of the show’s educational outreach. “My favorite thing of all is when kids who’ve just seen the show say that now they can see themselves onstage someday. This show is opening doors, crashing down barriers.” As Nadal might say: “That’s cool.”

he echoes of war in Georgia aren’t hard to hear if you know where to listen. The state was pivotal in the two most intense wars fought inside the United States — the American Revolution and the Civil War. Although almost 100 years apart, the footsteps of battalions from both conflicts crisscross everything from Georgia’s forested foothills to the streets of Savannah. Georgia, named for King George II and founded in 1733 as a British Colony, was one of 13 original Colonies. In 1788, it became the fourth state admitted to the newly minted Union. Some 73 years later, it became a major player in the Civil War, seceding from the Union with 10 like-minded states. ENCORE ATLANTA | ATLANTA’S PERFORMING ARTS PUBLICATION | ENCOREATLANTA.COM

More than a century has passed but the hopes and hostilities of Georgia’s war history have not gone with the wind. Arm yourself with knowledge at these locations. KETTLE CREEK BATTLEFIELD Depending on who you ask, the 1779 Battle of Kettle Creek was either a minor backwoods skirmish or a big Revolutionary War win. Not under debate: That it was the only conflict in Georgia where the home team triumphed. Savannah had fallen two months earlier. In this clash between 600 British loyalists and 340 patriots, the Americans trounced all the king’s men, much to the dismay of the British, who thought they’d handily roll over the region. DID YOU KNOW? This battle took place near what became Washington, Ga., the first town in the country named for George Washington. WHAT YOU’LL FIND: A picnic area atop War Hill, hiking trails and historical markers. Eight miles east, on the

square in Washington, a monument dedicated to AfricanAmericans who fought for the Colonies. CIVIL WAR CONNECTION: There’s a legend of Confederate gold buried near Washington, worth $100,000 when stolen and hidden in 1865 (that’s about $2 million today). Tales persist of people finding old coins near Chennault Plantation in neighboring Lincoln County, but the bulk of the booty (according to a deathbed confession from a lighthouse keeper in the 1890s) was sent north by rail and for a time lay concealed at the bottom of Lake Michigan. The History Channel of late began airing “The Curse of the Civil War Gold” about a nationwide hunt for this lost Georgia treasure. DETAILS: kettlecreekbattlefield.org.

until the end of the war in 1865. The Savannah History Museum highlights the American Revolution, partly due to Battlefield Memorial Park next door and nearby Old Fort Jackson, Georgia’s longest-standing brick fort. The Battle of Savannah’s armies included soldiers from modern-day Haiti and five European countries. AfricanAmerican and Native Americans also fought in the conflict, one of the costliest for those bent on independence. The Coastal Heritage Society has unearthed evidence of this battle, including trenches and fortifications. WHAT YOU’LL FIND: Weapons and military uniforms among 10,000 artifacts that stretch from Savannah’s start as a city through the Revolutionary War and beyond. All are housed in an 1800s railroad building. Loyalists and Liberty programs happen Thursday-Sunday with re-enactments (participate if you wish) and musketfiring demonstrations (stand back and watch).

Andersonville Prison at the Civil War’s Camp Sumpter was, and is, notorious for its inhumane conditions. About 100 men, Union soldiers all, died there each day.

FORT MORRIS At Fort Morris in the city of Midway, 40 miles south of Savannah, 200 patriots defended a growing Revolutionary War seaport. British forces demanded the fort’s surrender in 1778, but Georgia-born Col. John McIntosh refused, famously issuing the challenge, “Come and take it!” The British withdrew but regrouped, returned and captured the fort a few months later. WHAT YOU’LL FIND: A campground, picnic area, a visitors center and earthwork on 67 acres with a tranquil view over St. Catherines Sound at St. Catherines Island, one of Georgia’s Golden Isles. DID YOU KNOW: A population of free-ranging lemurs live on St. Catherines Island, the only such group outside Madagascar.

ANDERSONVILLE Camp Sumpter, best known as the site of the infamous Andersonville Prison, held Union soldiers during the final year of the Civil War under the command of Capt. Henry Wirz. The POW camp, built to house 10,000 men, held more than 33,000, many of them wounded. With 60

KENNESAW MOUNTAIN BATTLEFIELD This 2,965-acre park preserves a Civil War battlefield from the Atlanta Campaign. The first shot was fired near Chattanooga in May 1864. By June, Gen. William T. Sherman launched his frontal assault on Confederate troops at the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. At stake was Atlanta, with its railroad hub and supply centers. In a classic case of winning the battle but losing the war, Southern soldiers were victorious at Kennesaw but failed to halt Sherman’s advance. The Confederacy’s worst fears were realized when the general followed his troops to Atlanta and, on Nov. 15, 1864, ordered the city burned to the ground. WHAT YOU’LL FIND: A museum, cannons, historical markers and nature trails. Hike to the top of the mountain (1,800-ft. elevation) or, on weekends, take the shuttle bus that runs every 30 minutes. DETAILS: 770.427.4686 or nps.gov/kemo/index.htm.

CYCLORAMA Come inside for the view. The Cyclorama, a massive 6-ton cylindrical painting depicting the Battle of Atlanta, was finished in 1886 and, in 2017, moved from its longtime location in Atlanta’s Grant Park neighborhood to the Atlanta History Center in Buckhead. The 374-ft. diorama is in the midst of a multimilliondollar restoration and is expected to reopen to the public in the fall of 2018. Until then, private, pre-opening tours are available Saturdays.

Food for Thought Restored landmarks, brews on the BeltLine, Lao street food and Houston’s, we have a problem. By David Danzig 70

MAY/JUNE 2018


W

hat’s new and different in metro Atlanta’s dining scene? Let us catch you up on projects coming to Midtown, the Spaghetti Junction area, Buckhead and the Atlanta BeltLine — and leaving East Cobb and ... Buckhead. WELL DONE Despite a dearth of historic structures in Atlanta, a few 20th-century icons still hide in plain sight. Midtown’s “Castle,” a six-level, 1910-era mansion, is one such survivor. It’s now home to the all-new Rose + Rye. After an interior architectural makeover, the space feels modern and elegant. Rose + Rye’s one-sheet menu stays in the epicurean fairway

Rose + Rye, now open in Midtown Atlanta’s 1910era “Castle,” serves steak tartare, chilled yellowfin tuna, pork tenderloin and a buttery soft filet mignon.

Snack Boxe Bistro, new to Spaghetti Junction, puts a contemporary spin on Lao street food — the sort of food you’d buy from a stall or cart on city streets. Try the sticky rice, an extremely dense and rich rice that comes in a bag. You eat it with your fingers and dip it in sauces (sweet roasted pepper or chili lime fish). Other standouts include the chicken larb (pronounced LOB), the Nam Kha and the lemongrass ribs. We Sticky rice treats (top left) Westerners will love Snack Boxe Bistro for its English menu, come right from a bag at simplicity, cleanliness and prices. Not a single dish tops $10, an absolute steal for food of this quality. … Snack Boxe Bistro near Spaghetti Junction in New Realm Brewing Co. has to be one of the most exciting Doraville. You get highopenings on the Atlanta BeltLine. The 20,000-sq. ft. colossus quality food (including of a brewery and full-service restaurant is on the Eastside Trail the spicy noodle soup, top right), low prices and and shares a building with Two Urban Licks (which was cool before we’d even heard the term “beltline”). New Realm’s plenty of ambiance. second-story, indoor/outdoor terrace commands an impressive perch with views of the BeltLine’s concrete ribbon, Ponce City Market and the Midtown skyline. The experience inside is genuine brewpub. The smell of hops is in the air, and beverages are happily flowing. The beer lineup includes pilsners, IPAs, pale ales and even a triple IPA, which boasts an alcohol content of 11.5 percent. Pair your beverage of choice with elevated comfort food — Springer Mountain Farms beer-can chicken, Spanish-style tomato-braised pork meatballs, Korean pork buns, she-crab soup and wood-fired pizzas. 72

featuring American cuisine made with a slight Southern flair. Steak tartare, chilled yellowfin tuna, pork tenderloin and a buttery-soft filet mignon are among the confidently executed dishes. And with a name that includes “rye,” you can imagine which way the excellent cocktails lean. Think of Rose + Rye as a good jumping-off point for a show or concert at the Fox Theatre, the Woodruff Arts Center, the High Museum of Art or any number of Midtown-based arts companies. …

SIMMERING Ponce City Market’s iconic — and long-vacant — tower will become home to RFD Social, a concept from Slater Hospitality, the owners and operators of PCM’s rooftop Skyline Park and Nine Mile Station. The name comes from the 1920s radio show “Dinner Bell R.F.D.,” which was broadcast from the tower’s 11th floor. RFD Social will include the Parlour, a “re-energized” extension of the indoor lobby with a public bar area, and the Roebuck Room, a special-events space that will hold up to 175 people. …

74

Say hello to happy news for Buckhead. Roswell’s popular Little Alley Steak opens a second spot there, likely due — at this writing — in early May. The new Little Alley moves into the space once occupied by Emeril’s and AJA. Look for an oversized dining room; a 2,500-sq. ft. outdoor terrace with a full bar, lounge and dining patio; and more than 356 bourbons.

You’ll find New Realm Brewing Co. on the Eastside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine. Among its highlights: Spanishstyle tomato-braised pork meatballs (top) and, well, fresh beer!

Kevin Gillespie, former “Top Chef” combatant and owner of Gunshow and Revival, will open Cold Beer, a 7,000-sq. ft. cocktail bar/beer garden near the BeltLine’s Old Fourth Ward path. Expect three patios, all facing the BeltLine, with one of them on a rooftop. The beer garden plans a sizable dining room and bar. Cold Beer will join a new Shake Shack and Hazel Jane’s Wine & Coffee in the Edge mixed-use development at Edgewood and DeKalb avenues. Construction should begin midyear, with an opening anticipated for mid-2019. …


TOAST Much to the chagrin of its fans (and it had many), the Houston’s on Lenox Road closed after 30 years and a high-profile boycott organized by rapper T.I. The sides mended fences in early February (“We may now enjoy the spinach dip again!” T.I. tweeted), but allegations of racial profiling hurt the restaurant’s reputation. The spinach dip is still available at the Peachtree Road and Northside Parkway locations. … Muss & Turner’s in East Cobb closed less than a year after opening. In a press release, namesake Ryan Turner said the closure was due to location and a dining market that proved less fertile than the eatery’s original spot on Cumberland

Parkway in Smyrna. The original spot — and its secret alter ego Eleanor’s (check out the speakeasy’s walk-in refrigerator) continue to be popular. … Finally, wave and say bye-bye to One Midtown Kitchen. The restaurant was a millennium pioneer on the contemporary Atlanta dining scene but, after 16 years, founder Bob Amick decided to focus on his consulting business instead. One Midtown’s slightly younger sibling, Two Urban Licks, and six other Concentrics-brand Atlanta restaurants, continue on. ***

FOX FUN FACTS Uncover the mysteries found within the Egyptian Ballroom There’s more to the Fox Theatre than its Moorish design, spacious stage and expansive 4,665-seat auditorium. The Fox’s hallways, alcoves and meeting/event spaces are just as luxe as everything else in sight. The Egyptian Ballroom, Grand Salon and Spanish Room — all event spaces that can be rented for parties, weddings and the like — were originally Shriners’ meeting spaces. Here are few more facts about one of them, the Egyptian Ballroom: • The Atlanta Shriners, a fraternal organization, first conceived the idea for the building that became the Fox. Members reserved the Egyptian Ballroom for Shriners’ ceremonies and celebrations. They used the adjoining Grand Salon as a library. • The ballroom’s original 7,500-sq. ft. floor is made of hard maple, also known as rock maple. A custom-designed carpet with Egyptian symbols of the afterlife and resurrection now protects the maple floor.

• The gilded and glazed wings of Osiris stretch above the ballroom’s stage. A plaster intaglio panel (an incised or engraved design) of Ramses II subduing an enemy is the focal point. • The painted symbols in the ballroom are authentic hieroglyphics but don’t form any real phrases when put together.

• The ballroom’s walls were covered with several coats of paint in the 1970s, obscuring its original stenciled designs. When the years of paint were removed, vivid Egyptian symbols for life and rebirth once again saw the light of day ... and night.

• The ballroom’s balcony is a scarab, or dung beetle, the symbol for the sun god Ra, who was thought to ward off evil. It’s surrounded by the wings of Osiris, god of the underworld, afterlife and resurrection.
