Lin-Manuel Miranda Takes The 'Hamilton' Stage One Last Time

The musical theater mastermind took his final bow on the "Hamilton" stage to the perfect music accompaniment.

"Hamilton" creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda bid farewell to the hit Broadway musical, along with Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr), Phillipa Soo (Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton) and ensemble member Ariana DeBose, on Saturday night.

Miranda's curtain call was live streamed on the show's official Facebook page

There were no big speeches or goodbyes — just Miranda with a simple bow and a hand over his heart with the theme of the NBC series "The West Wing" playing in the background.

The audience was understandably emotional, giving standing ovations to the departing cast members throughout the show, especially during Miranda's opening number, "Alexander Hamilton," Odom's "The Room Where It Happens" and Christopher Jackson and Miranda's "One Last Time." 

The audience even sang along for King George's (Rory O'Malley) song "You'll Be Back."

Variety reports Aaron Paul, Jane Fonda, John Kerry, Rosie O’Donnell, Mariska Hargitay, Edward Norton and Jennifer Lopez were among those in attendance at the Richard Rodgers Theater.

After exiting the stage, Miranda posted the following tweet for his fans:


The world turned upside down for "Hamilton" fans when the main cast trio announced they were leaving the show. But "Hamilton," by far the hottest ticket on Broadway in decades, is in good hands. Regular Miranda understudy and Sunday matinee fill-in Javier Munoz will take the stage as the new Hamilton this month.

Meanwhile, Miranda wasted no time in making a personal change. He quickly chopped off his signature curly locks backstage, in a move instantly dubbed his "Hamilcut."

He appeared at the cast party with his new look. 


And Lin-Manuel Miranda has cut all his hair off. The greatest reppin' the greatest. #HamiltonMusical #Hamilcut
