'Hamilton' at the White House Online Livestream: Watch Cast Perform Live for the Obamas
They took the Grammys by storm and (unsurprisingly) nabbed the award for best musical theater album, and now the cast of Broadway's Hamilton are taking their show on the road — to Washington, D.C. specifically. Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and the rest of the crew were welcomed to the White House Monday afternoon by first lady Michelle Obama, and are slated to perform later in the day in front of President Barack Obama. Obama's remarks, as well as the performance, will be livestreamed on whitehouse.gov.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the cast will also be hosting a student workshop and a Q&A on their Washington trip. Meanwhile, Miranda has been active on social media chronicling the visit with the hashtag #Hamiltrip.
Thankfully, the first lady's remarks — in addition to the cast's performance — will be available through a livestream on the White House's website. You can also check out the livestreams for both below. Michelle welcomed the cast at 1:45 p.m. EDT, while Obama's remarks prior to the live performance will start at 5:30 p.m. EDT.
