Refrains

Several of the major characters in the story are accompanied by their own refrain, worked into future songs by the company.

  • Alexander Hamilton: When Hamilton is addressed by name, it is almost always in the style of his titular song. The line "I am not throwing away my shot" is also repeated throughout the play in reference to him.[37][38]
  • Aaron Burr: Nearly all of the musical's characters say "Aaron Burr, sir" when they address him for the first time, in the style of the song titled such. Hamilton also addresses him like this throughout the play.[38][39] Other characters also repeat Hamilton's taunt at Burr, "If you stand for nothing, what will you fall for?".[38]
  • Schuyler Sisters: When either of the main character sisters (Angelica or Eliza) are introduced to someone new, their names are sung like they are in "The Schuyler Sisters". Hamilton also generally addresses them like this.[38][40]
