  1. im gonna cry. Hes a sweet sweet sweet boy. What did we do to deserve him i…..i….wow….yes….pure…son…


  2. Great message! Talented, kid…what a great way to bring history alive and into the consciousness of today's youth!

    I’m picking up a copy of Hamilton, by Ron Chernow, and another by Richard Brookhiser, at the library today! Thanks.

  3. 1:24 "I grabbed a biography at random" Imagine how different the world would be now if he had not done that

  4. I love him so much. His words……πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  5. I'm going to this workshop in broadway and I'm literally PRAYING that Lin is going to pop out of no where in the workshop

  6. One thing I love about Lin (and I see it in every friggin' video I see him in) is that he could choose to be a classic rich-dude celebrity, but he doesn't. He's so down-to-earth, yet he still manages to wow us and give us joy, which makes him even more relatable. You can see it in the way he talks, the way he dresses (its not bad, its so cute and amazing), and he is hands-down my favorite person on the face of the earth.

  7. Lin is my inspiration and role-model I want to be just like him when I get older…No, I need to be bolder! Follow my own dreams…

  8. Brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world. I love to see our country united in such a beautiful way. I hope I get to see this musical some day. I'm also very sad like so many others who did not get to see it with the original cast!

  9. When he says "My name is Lin-Manuel Miranda" I shouted "I KNOW YOU DONT KNOW WHO I AM BUT I WO-"

    I would have kept going but my friend started yelling for me to shut up…

  10. No matter what anyone says to praise Lin, he is still the 21st century Shakespeare hands down. No better praise can top it.

  11. He is an undisputed genius with great humility, generosity, and kindness. And he's from The Greatest City In The World!

  12. I feel like I would be so Hamilfanish and annoying if I ever met Lin. If I saw him walking down the street I would probably
    1. Ask for an autograph and a selfie.
    2. Spurt random Hamilton songs.
    3. Use the selfie and autograph as bragging rights to everyone I know.

    Example: FRIEND: I got an A+ you only got an A
    ME: Oh yeah, well I met THE LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA. That makes me better. πŸ˜€

  13. You certainly have that effect on young audiences LMM! I work at a children's theatre and the middle/high schoolers are obsessed with your work. …As am I. πŸ˜€
