Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jimmy Fallon celebrate Broadway’s return with catchy ‘Hamilton’ parody
While staying at home has been the safe, responsible choice amidst the coronavirus pandemic, we still miss the fun and excitement of a night on the town. In the Heightscreator Lin-Manuel Miranda is no exception, joining Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show for a fun musical tribute to all the Broadway shows they miss, from Chicago to Wicked.
Fortunately for Miranda, Fallon, and all New York’s musical theatre fans, Broadway is currently scheduled to reopen in September. As such, the duo also performed a cute parody of Hamilton‘s “You’ll Be Back” celebrating its anticipated return, joined by Broadway stars Jimmy Smits, Olga Merediz, Phylicia Rashad, Kristin Chenoweth, Christopher Jackson, and Laura Benanti.
“Won’t you please come with us?” they sang. “There is life beyond your friends at Netflix, Hulu, Peacock, Disney Plus!”
