I was fortunate enough to attend the special programs about Alexander Hamilton that Eva Dorrepaal and Jimmy Napoli put on in Savannah...."Understanding Alexander Hamilton & Raising a Revolutionary."
Ms. Dorrepaal gave a stunning one-woman performance as Hamilton's mother, Rachael Faucett, raising her illegitimate son in the West Indies. I found myself concentrating on her facial expressions---fear, joy, apprehension, weariness. Those expressions underscored her words. She was commanding in her portrayal.
Equally commanding is historian Jimmy Napoli. He is not a lecturer, leaning on his lectern, droning on. Given the proper setting, he is full of energy, strutting about, gesturing, drawing the audience into the dynamic and often chaotic life of Alexander Hamilton.
These two are worth seeing!
