Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda's stage debut in Ham4Ham video
History had its eyes on Lin-Manuel Miranda long before he was Usnavi or Alexander Hamilton. #TBT came a little early in this week’s digital #Ham4Ham, as Miranda treated fans to a video of his stage debut. The place? Hunter College Elementary School. The event? A talent show, where the budding Broadway sensation took to the stage (sunglasses and all) to perform a rather impressive rendition of “Land of Confusion” by Genesis.
Even at 7 years old, it’s clear Miranda was a natural talent — with some serious swagger. “The sunglasses were a whole thing, I had to get rid of them,” Miranda wrote. “I have not left the stage since.”
