I cannot tell a lie. The actor playing George Washington in San Francisco's production of "Hamilton" may be my favorite podcast yet. Darnell Abraham grew up in Bakersfield knowing he loved entertaining people. He found his voice, quite literally, in college. And, what a voice. He made a HUGE impression on a guy he met at choir camp. That guy? PRODUCER GEOFF!!! You couldn't make this one up. Now Darnell is starring as George Washington in "Hamilton" at the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco after appearing with Hamilton's creator, Lin Manuel Miranda, in "Hamilton" in Puerto Rico.
