There’s no need to wait for the Tonys to see the Hamilton cast perform.

CBS shared a behind-the-scenes, 360-degree video of the insanely popular Broadway musical’s cast rehearsing on stage. Leslie Odom Jr., who plays Aaron Burr, is front-and-center singing his ballad “Wait For It.” His fellow cast members surround him — including Hamilton creator-star Lin-Manuel Miranda, Daveed Diggs, and Phillipa Soo — filling in as the chorus.

Hamilton is up for a record 16 Tony Awards on Sunday, including Best Musical. Odom Jr. and Miranda will go head-to-head as nominees for Best Performance by a Leading Actor.
