“The first time you meet these women [in the show], they are coming out and saying what they want and what they deserve and standing for what they believe in.”

“[Renee, Phillipa, and I] had such a tight bond and we were singing all together constantly. [Hamilton creator and star] Lin-Manuel Miranda actually rewrote [the song] ‘The Schuyler Sisters’ and put more harmonies in and made it more who we are when we’re together.”
