Read his Miranda writes.
“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda turned his creative juices loose on a different Broadway show on Wednesday.
The Tony winning superstar visited Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre for a matinee performance of “Come From Away.” According to his Twitter page, he was blown away.
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s series of excited tweets.
“Cod damn you Canadians for 100 minutes wherein I constantly blinked back tears of gratitude for cheering & decency & your wonderful show,” he captioned a backstage photo of himself with the cast.
Miranda was referencing a cod fish, which is essential to the story about a small Canadian town that hosted stranded travelers during the 9/11 terror attacks. Miranda continued flattering the show with seven more tweets complaining that the hit musical’s only flaw was that it didn’t give audience members enough time to cheer between songs.
He finally finished his Twitter barrage by jokingly warning theatergoers “Don’t let their kindness fool you, them Canadians are ruthless with your emotions.”
Meanwhile, we’re told that “Come From Away’s” Tony-nominated creators Irene Sankoff and David Hein were at home hosting a playdate for their two-year-old at their uptown, when they heard that Miranda was in the house.
“They put the kids in a cab and the playdate became an epic adventure, which ended in the duo chatting about musical theater with Miranda and his wife, and the kids high-fiving Lin-Manuel Miranda before exploring a Broadway stage together,” we’re told.
Miranda was apparently blown away.
Miranda also had another reasons to celebrate. When Wednesday ended. what would have been Alexander Hamilton’s 260th birthday began. Manuel’s show about the founding father netted 11 Tony Awards, a Grammy and a Pulitzer Prize.
