Lin-Manuel Miranda performs “Alexander Hamilton” at The White House

This happened before Hamilton had hit the stage and there are two things I love about this.
1. It’s still pretty early in the creative process and isn’t quite polished yet. In fact, people in the audience aren’t really sure if it’s a goof or not and laugh a few times during the performance.
2. Seeing Obama in the White House is pretty jarring at the moment. Given the chaos that has engulfed the White House over the last year I never have missed Obama more (and he looks so young here!)
