Broadway is back, and so is Lin-Manuel Miranda and his show “Hamilton.” The 41-year-old New York-born Puerto Rican actor, singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and playwright gathered with his crew on West 46th Street in Manhattan.
Holding a megaphone, Miranda, Hamilton’s band, and actors stand outside the Richard Rodgers Theater just hours before showtime. “Hello, New York!” yelled Lin-Manuel to the crowd waiting in line to enjoy the show after the pandemic shutdown.
“Broadway is back! Thank you for supporting live theater. It has been a hard year and a half, and I’m so grateful for the shows that lead the way, like ‘Passover’ and ‘Waitress,’” he said, inviting people to support.
Miranda proceeded to call the “Chicago,” “Wicked,” “Lion King,” and “Hamilton” cast members to sing the iconic theme song from the Martin Scorsese film New York, New York, composed by John Kander, with lyrics by Fred Ebb.
The star also advised people to get vaccinated and to continue supporting Broadway shows.
