Miranda makes his move | Manhattan Times

BY Gregg McQueen and Debralee Santos

Lin Manuel Miranda

Lin-Manuel Miranda took his final bow as Alexander Hamilton in his smash Broadway musical’s July 9 performance.

That evening’s show also marked the final appearances for co-stars Leslie Odom Jr., who portrayed Aaron Burr, and Phillipa Soo, who played Eliza Hamilton.

During post-show bows, the departing actors received standing ovations, particularly Miranda, who was nudged to the front of the stage by cast mate Christopher Jackson to soak in cheers from the packed house.

The show’s orchestra then launched into the theme song from television show The West Wing, which Miranda has cited as an inspiration. The actor appeared visibly moved as applause rained down on him.

After the show, hundreds of fans packed the street outside the Richard Rodgers Theatre and stood in a steady rain, hoping to catch a glimpse of Miranda emerging from the building. Instead, he appeared on a balcony above the theater’s marquee, an umbrella in his hand, taking time to wave to onlookers below.
