According to Playbill, producers for Broadway mega-hit “Hamilton” have announced that they are holding open auditions for the New York production and upcoming national tours, looking for singers who can rap. The production seeks “non-white men and women, ages 20s to 30s,” according to the announcement. And good news: no acting experience necessary.
