Hamilton's Jonathan Groff Is Aware That He Spits While Singing, Plus Fans Are Reacting!

Jonathan Groff‘s performance as King George in Hamilton was captured for the movie that is debuting on Disney+ this weekend and one detail of his work has a lot of fans talking.

The 35-year-old actor tends to spit while he is singing and he is well aware!

“I spit a lot onstage,” Jonathan told Variety last year. “I’ve always been a spitter … I start sweating. I just get wet when I perform onstage. It is just what happens.”

Jonathan played the role of Seymour in the off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors last year and his spit often hit the fans since the theater was so tiny.

“For the first couple weeks of the run I felt bad, because I’d walk down to the end of the stage in the second song of the show, ‘Skid Row,’ and I can’t help it, I’m just, like, spitting on everyone. And they’re either enjoying it, or they’re laughing, or they’re holding up their programs to block their face,” Jonathan said. “I don’t care anymore, but it made me feel self-conscious at first. I’d never been so close to the audience where I was actually seeing the reaction on people’s face while I spat on them!”

Learn about the one moment of the show that is captured in the film, but now on the soundtrack.
