Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda Tell the Story of ‘Hamilton’ in Less Than 3 Minutes

BY RELEVANT CULTURE December 06, 2017

Before the Broadway play, not too many people had an interest or even basic knowledge of Alexander Hamilton’s life.

Then came Lin-Manuel Miranda and all of that changed.

Tickets to Hamilton are still kind of hard to come by, so this three-minute version by Miranda on Ellen’s Show Me More Show, with help from 7-year-old presidential expert Macey Hensley, will basically clue you in on the gist of things.

If Macey looks familiar, it’s because we first met her on Ellen when she was just 5 years old and showed off her history knowledge, and then again last year when she met then-President Obama.

Earlier this year, she even got to go to see Hamilton live.
