Broadway Shockers 2015: Hamilton Celebrates Opening With Fireworks Over the Hudson

In 2015, the birthday celebration of the next great American musical rivals that of America herself.

It's weird that there were fireworks at the opening night of Hamilton. Broadway shows often throw elaborate parties celebrating the official beginning of their run, but usually those events are limited to friends, family, and the odd member of the press. But Hamilton's not just any show. Amiright? I am right. Hamilton shot off fireworks over the Hudson River for everyone to see to celebrate its opening.

Also, The Roots were there giving a super-special-secret performance. WTF.

No one but America herself has ever had a better birthday party.
