This ‘Tonight Show’ Performance Will Get You Excited for ‘Hamilton’ to Debut on Disney+
Hamilton hits Disney+ in just a few days, and we could not be more excited! With the release of a new trailer yesterday, Disney is giving us plenty to look forward to. The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon has joined in on the fun, with a performance of “Helpless” that knocks it out of the park. Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and the original Broadway cast of Hamilton including Lin-Manuel Miranda all came together to perform.
The Tonight Show Performance
This virtual performance featured everyone in their own homes via webcam. The stars used a variety of real instruments, in addition to some creative instruments found around the house. Dozens of vocalists came together to lend their talents, and we are amazed at the end result!
With catchy musical numbers like this one, it is easy to see why Hamilton is such a popular show.
The Broadway Musical
Hamilton debuted in 2015 at The Public Theater in New York, NY. The production gained notoriety early on and became a Broadway hit that same year. The original musical is written, composed, and starred in by Lin-Manuel Miranda. A diverse cast and a wide variety of musical styles separate Hamilton from other musicals.
Since premiering in 2015, Hamilton’s home is still Broadway. Now, after a North American tour and a 4-year run in Chicago, Hamilton has taken an intermission. While it is unknown when fans will be able to see Hamilton live on stage again, Disney has a creative solution.
The Coronavirus pandemic has prevented live performances from being possible, which makes the musical’s Disney+ debut a perfect solution to the problem. Now, The Tonight Show has given us yet again another reason to get excited about this!
