'Hamilton' Cast Will No Longer Use Guns During Tony Awards 2016 Performance Following Orlando Shooting

The cast of Hamilton is making some adjustments to their upcoming 2016 Tony Awards performance.

In wake of the tragic mass shooting that took at least 50 lives at an Orlando nightclub, the performance will reportedly no longer feature muskets or any prop weapons.

“Breaking: Cast of @HamiltonMusical is dropping the use of muskets from their #TonyAwards performance tonight because of Orlando,” New York Times theater reporter Michael Paulson tweeted.

Hamilton is up for a record-breaking 16 awards. The victims and their families will surely be in everyone’s minds tonight.
