The West Wing theme song was playing in the room where it happened.
Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda took his final bow Saturday night at New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre as the theme to Aaron Sorkin’s Emmy-winning drama played in the background. Miranda, a self-proclaimed West Wing acolyte, has previously said the series served as an inspiration for his Tony-winning mega-smash.
Saturday’s performance was also the swan song for Miranda’s co-stars Leslie Odom Jr. and Phillipa Soo. The celeb-packed audience reportedly included Jennifer Lopez, Aaron Paul, Charlie Rose, Jane Fonda, Rosie O’Donnell, Retta, Spike Lee and Secretary of State John Kerry.
The momentous curtain call was streamed live on Facebook. Watch it below.
