Lin-Manuel Miranda Performs Epic Freestyle Rap on The Tonight Show

This just in: Hamilton is now sold out through 2059. 

On Friday’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Broadway phenom Lin-Manuel Miranda performed two mind-blowing freestyle raps that rendered Fallon virtually speechless and likely increased demand for already-impossible-to-secure seats to Hamilton.

Seriously, though, if you are currently in possession of Hamilton tickets, lock them away in a safe until the day of the performance and then hire a security guard to escort you to The Richard Rodgers Theatre.

    Hamilton, Hamilton, Hamilton. I want to see this darn show now.

    The one youtube clip with Jonathan Groff and Andrew Raynells is hilarious.

    My friend has ours and she hid them away, hopefully she can find them by the time March rolls around! ;) I love Lin!

    I saw Hamilton in July when it was in previews – it was beyond amazing!! I compare the experience to seeing Les Mis in its first year on Broadway when I was 17. Completely entertaining and utterly moving. I feel so lucky to have scored a ticket because I live on the west coast and who knows when I’ll be back. :)

    In 2012, my friend showed me a clip of Lin-Manuel Miranda performing “The Hamilton Mixtape” at the White House Poetry Jam in 2009 on YouTube. (It’s still there – legally.) I loved it, as Alexander Hamilton is the Founding Father I’m most interested in when discussing/interpreting history (sorry Benjamin – it’s not all about you, and it was so creative, engaging, and informed. I read reviews about Hamilton and wish I could attend a performance, too. I’m glad to see this kind of success for him on Broadway and will simply have to wait to see if it comes to my way-way-way off Broadway city. :)

  6. If you do not believe Lin Manuel is a genius, look up any scene from the recent version of the Electric Company, specifically hard and soft G.

    He is so ridiculously talented. Saw In the Heights a few years back, and that show was incredible. I can’t wait to see Hamilton. So happy that he has another hit on his hands!
