Even Lin-Manuel Miranda doesn’t have any luck winning the Hamilton lottery.
The Tony Award-winning creator and former star of Broadway smash Hamilton is host of this week’s Saturday Night Live, and in promos for the appearance he joked with cast member Cecily Strong about the hottest ticket in New York.
“Oh my God, Lin, I just saw Hamilton, I have to tell you…” Strong admitted to Miranda, who interrupted his scene partner: “You’ve seen it? I’m so jealous.” After Strong’s surprise at his statement, Miranda continued: “Everyone’s like, Oh, good job.’ I can’t wait to see it. I can’t get tickets. I really want to see it one day.”
In addition to the Hamilton gag, the SNL promos feature a joke about Sex and the City playing off Miranda’s last name and Miranda’s “take” on Strong’s impression of him during last week’s episode.
