Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken Go Under the Sea for the First Digital #Ham4Ham

Alan Menken harmonizes with the Hamilton star for the inaugural online show.

Yesterday was an auspicious occasion for Broadway's Hamilton for several reasons. Not only was it Hamilton mastermind and star Lin-Manuel Miranda's birthday (which he wondrously shares with Ethel Merman), but it marked the first-ever digital #Ham4Ham show. Even though the off-the-cuff concerts have moved online till spring, that's no reason Broadway can't still party like it's 1989 — so that's exactly what Miranda did. Take a look as he and Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken throw down a Little Mermaid medley, taking all the millennials back to our earliest days of showtune nerd-dom.

Side note: The actual ticket lottery still took place outside the Richard Rodgers Theatre, so the Internet is in tact.
