Quorum.
Have less than zero interest in Hamilton, and every time I hear someone talk about how great it is the number goes down.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

You're really going to hate the musical I'm working on, Jeanne, in which The Maid of Orleans is really a gender-fluid lumberjack with an extreme case of ailurophobia.

Don't see why. Could be pretty neat.

I guessed someone who would become President for Friday's clue.

The totality of my knowledge of Hamilton is that some guy named Miranda has something to do with it.

QFT

The only interest I have in Hamilton is that I live there.

It looks like Mark didn't use the "clues bpmod got wrong this week" list that he usually uses to pick the extras.

Brian
...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

No guess on Monday.

Have not seen Hamilton or heard more than a snippet of its music.

Oyez on Monday...good to know that one was a challenge to many
I'm seeing Hamilton in October, but I knew there's a song called "The Room Where it Happens."
Interesting about that Final Jeopardy clue - could it be the first celebrity clue ever intended to give the players an advantage over the average J! Fan? As well-connected, well-off TV people, it's likely they've all seen Hamilton...
However, could it be the first celebrity game in which all three players had recently lost their jobs...? ;)

Biggest surprise? As of right now, with 55 responses, only 4 people admit to having listened to the cast album of Hamilton, and no one has admitted to seeing the play. When I go on Facebook it seems like all my trivia friends can't stop talking about Hamilton!

I think I clammed on The Tempest though I was ~80% sure it was correct.
I have not seen Hamilton, but I have heard a couple of the songs, most notably "Cabinet Battle #1."

I am definitely not a fan of hip-hop or rap, but for those of you who have been saying that they couldn't be less interested in Hamilton, I suggest you watch this clip of Lin-Manuel Miranda at The White House when he was still forming the idea for the play:
