Flashback Friday: Lin-Manuel Miranda Gets In the Heights Flash-Mobbed

Time for the masses outside the Richard Rodgers Theatre to start choreographing a ''Hamilton'' version. logo

Lin-Manuel Miranda knows his way around a mob. Every day outside the Richard Rodgers Theatre (where Hamilton opened to rave reviews last night), he and his fellow cast members shout through megaphones to entertain the hundreds of lottery hopefuls. Maybe one day the #Ham4Ham crowd will turn the tables on Miranda like his In the Heights groupies di d back in 2010. His first (and most likely not his last) Tony-winning musical In the Heights had just traveled out west to open at Los Angeles' Pantages Theatre. While the show's illustrious composer/performer was enjoying an unassuming meal in the L.A. sunshine, he got a surprise he'll never forget.
