For all the theater-buffs who haven’t yet managed to win the lottery and score Hamilton tickets, you’re in luck.
The hit musical’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda performed the entire play in three minutes for The Ellen Show. He touches on all the big musical numbers: “I’m not throwing away my shot!” Miranda repeats frantically. He even gives away the ending: “History spoiler: Burr shoots Hamilton.”
Miranda also enlisted the help of a colonially dressed Macey Hensley, who won the heart of Ellen DeGeneres and her audience with her impeccable knowledge of the American presidents. While she didn’t comment on Alexander Hamilton, who was never president, Hensley had plenty of fun facts about George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. If you needed any more proof of her impressive historical repertoire, watch below as Macey shows off her skills.
