Carpool Karaoke Hamilton The Late Late Show

Carpool Karaoke: Hamilton Star and More to Take Part in Late Late Show Bit

Broadway fans, prepare to be in the Subaru where it happened.

Monday’s Late Late Show (12:37 am/11:37 pm) will find host James Corden cruising and crooning with Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with Audra McDonald (Private Practice), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) and Jane Krakowski (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), reports.

The bit is tied to this year’s Tony Awards, over which Corden will preside when they’re broadcast live on Sunday, June 12, on CBS. All of his passengers on this go-around have ties to the Great White Way: McDonald currently stars in Shuffle Along, Krakowski in She Loves Me and Ferguson in Fully Committed; Miranda created and sings the lead role in the musical Hamilton.

Krakowski and Miranda are both nominated in this year’s competition: He in three categories — part of Hamilton‘s 16 record-breaking nods —  and her for Featured Actress in a Musical.

    Audra Mcdonald needs the car just to herself. She’s got an awesome personality plus that voice that is just out of this world.

      I got the impression from the article that each would be in the car solo. People who saw the filming with Lin-Manuel Miranda did not say anyone else was in the car as far as I can recall.

        He did one with Clooney, and Julia Roberts and Rhianna(??) where they were all in the car. But each had their own entrance, so to speak. So it could be Lin-Manuel was the first person in the car. OTOH, I’m not sure he’s done one with five people in the car, so who knows?

    I’m not surprised that he’s going to do this

    Aww just read he is leaving Hamilton
    Not sure if it’s going to be worth seeing next year without him
