Fresh from its premiere at the Tribeca Festival, don’t miss Satisfied at this special preview screening at the Jacob Burns Film Center. 

In 2015, Hamilton opened and took the world by storm, earning near-universal critical acclaim and, some might say, forever changing the course of musical theater. It certainly changed the life of Renée Elise Goldsberry, who starred as Angelica Schuyler and would go on to win the Tony Award for her performance. However, the journey to that win was a hard one, filled with uncertainty, loss, and, ultimately, growth.

Satisfied takes viewers through that emotional journey, providing an intimate look at Goldsberry’s path as she grapples with fertility and the desire to have a family, all while balancing her growing career against the backdrop of the hit musical Hamilton. With vlogs Goldsberry recorded over the years and exclusive never-before-seen footage of the making of Hamilton, audiences are given a front-row seat to not only the show itself but also get a chance to deeply understand the sacrifices and battles Goldsberry navigated on her way to motherhood and stardom.


Satisfied is a beautiful and inspirational documentary about how family love can be found in many places with various people. Renée Elise Goldsberry generously opens up about how her pregnancy issues affected her life."
Carla Hay, Culture Mix
"The cherry on the doc's cake is a full rendition of the song "Satisfied," where it becomes obvious to anyone who did not see her onstage why Goldsberry is a true Broadway star."
Frank J. Avella, Edge Media Network
