Hamilton is a musical tour-de-force, a smash hit, and a major moneymaker, with people spending as much as $549-a-seat on premium (non-scalped) tickets. Recently, it was revealed that the original cast members weren't getting any of the show's profits, with cash flow primarily going to investors and producers. This week, though, the performers and producers reached a deal, and it looks like the former are getting a slice of the pie.

Hamilton's making more than $500,000-a-week, and once the show heads to Chicago (and then on a national tour) in September, that profit's expect to skyrocket all the more. Earlier this month the Hollywood Reporter broke down the cash flow—the Public Theater, creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, producers Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs and Jill Furman, director Thomas Kail, and choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler all get weekly royalties, and that crew, along with the investors, divvy up the net profits.

But now, the original dancers and performers who helped shape Hamilton into the hit it is today will get a cut, which is unusual for the industry. It's unclear how much the actors will earn, but as the Times pointed out today, the average Broadway performer starts out making about $1,900 a week, and considering how hard it is to land a role, the well can dry up fast between shows. "This should be a real moment of celebration for any actor who feels powerless,” Kate Shindle, the president of the Actors’ Equity union, told the paper.
