I feel like there's two types of theater people

Type one: auditions for everything because they have a genuine passion for theater, whether it’s Shakespeare, straight plays, comedies or musicals, they want to do it all.

In real life, Hamilton was reportedly a very nice person who cared deeply about children, frequently donating to charitable organizations and spending time in her later career to make public service announcements promoting the welfare of pets.
