Eliza Schuyler Hamilton.

My dear Eliza. Eliza is one of the most expressive and resilient characters in the entire Hamilton show. Her song at the end really gets to me. It hadn't before, but now I just can't handle it. THE GASP! Say what you will, but I do believe it's her breaking the 4th wall and realizing her story is being told. Powerful. I love it so much. This is when she is mourning during It's Quiet Uptown. Her strength and courage throughout the show dealing with loss, heartbreak, betrayal; it's incredible. So, the show started with Alexander Hamilton and so did my series, but both, appropriately, end with Eliza.
