‘Cabinet Battle #2’ has never looked better.

Hamilton‘s live Ham4Ham may be over with but the format certainly hasn’t been forgotten. The new cast revived it online on Wednesday with a stunning Ham4Ham in honor of Deaf Awareness Week, also known as International Week of the Deaf.

Featuring New York Deaf Theatre actors Alexandria Wailes, Jubil Khan, Samantha Coleman, and Shelly Guy, the performance of “Cabinet Battle #2” is powerful and evocative.

“We were honored to be the first Deaf artists to appear on the #Ham4Ham show, and we thank the Hamilton family for inviting us to the ‘Room Where It Happens,'” a post about the performance on the NYDT site reads.

Fans are going wild for the Ham4Ham. Many want an American Sign Language full-lengthy adaptation to make it onstage—and they know just who to cast in Hamilton‘s leading roles.
