After winning an obscene number of Olympic medals in Rio, the Final Five flew to New York for a victory tour where they scoredHamilton tickets and met the cast.
Seeing the Final Five posing like the Schuyler Sisters got us thinking Team USA’s gymnasts could totally be on Broadway.
The women’s gymnastics skills would help them handle the show’s choreography; the Richard Rodgers Theatre’s 1,319 audience members are nothing compared to millions of Olympics viewers; and we’ll just assume their singing and rapping skills are good enough.
Simone Biles as Alexander Hamilton
Biles was crowned the world’s best gymnast, and Hamilton is the show’s protagonist. Both are ambitious, have U.S. pride and some pretty big star power.
Gabby Douglas as Aaron Burr
Well if it isn’t Gabby Douglas, sir. If Douglas got a shot at playing Aaron Burr, she could let out any pent-up resentment she had at Simone Biles passing her to become the world’s top gymnast.
Aly Raisman as Angelica Schuyler
Angelica Schuyler patiently stepped aside to set her sister Eliza up with Alexander Hamilton just like how Aly Raisman gracefully took silver when Simone took gold in the all-around.
Madison Kocian as Eliza Hamilton
You can’t help but love Madison Kocian, just like you can’t help but feel for Eliza, Alexander’s wife.
Laurie Hernandez as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson
Lafayette and Jefferson are two sassy, suave dudes who can also take things seriously and be badass leaders. Naturally, fierce firecracker Hernandez would seamlessly slip into the roles.
