Lin-Manuel Miranda Hosts a Special #Ham4Ham for Hamilton's LA Opening Night

In sync Their dance moves were perfectly executed for the yet-to-be-announced song

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has helped generate support for struggling immigrants through a ticket lottery surrounding the musical's Hollywood opening.

Honestly, do yourself a favor and skip to the 3:45 mark; that's where the goodness starts, when the gloriousness starts. "I might get on the crosswalk.'" And get on the crosswalk he did, but not before a pep talk from Corden.

This is what we need, people.

Miranda, however, is clearly excited for the drama to unfold on the streets.

After a freakish parking lot rehearsal - in which Corden suggested, to no avail, that they get in the Sixties mindset with a group orgy - they hit the streets, timing each song during traffic stops as commuters honked their horns in annoyance.


With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

"Remember, this could be it for you", Corden tells Miranda.

Miranda is in Los Angeles to promote the West Coast production of his Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Hamilton, that opened on August 16.

Watch Lin-Manuel perform "Hair" in Corden's crosswalk rendition. The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights at 12:35/11:35c on CBS.
