    All these bits on this show are fake, pre written + setup by the writers,
    and rehearsed. The fake laughing and fake clapping says it all. This man
    might have lyrics , but this is fake.

    Our dream is to see Hamilton but it’s so expensive we can’t afford it.
    We’ve been number one fans since In the Heights. I hope to surprise my
    husband with tickets one day, he is obsessed with Lin…even dressed as
    Usnavi for the last showing and met his family at a restaurant ? Epic

    Honestly, I don’t know why they feel the need to put “(from “Hampton”)”
    right next to his name. They just assume nobody knows him.

    I don’t understand how this doesn’t have millions of views: Lin-Manual
    Miranda is the most talented man out there and how he can top his amazing
    Broadway hit, “In the Heights,” one of my favorites, with his newest
    classic, “Hamilton,” goes to show how brilliant he really is.

    Lin Manuel Miranda won a MacArthur Genius Grant. the man can literally do

    Genuinely love the nerdcore fans of LMM as soon as he said the line I knew
    there would be war within the comments section. Regardless, the force is
    strong in LMM

    Proof it’s fake at 4:20. They added a vocal effect to his voice to make him
    sound like Darth Vader. Listen: “I’m behind the mask, saying Luke I am your
    father.” If it was real they wouldn’t have known if and where that effect
    was needed.

    I don’t think it was rehearsed, you can hear slight hesitation when Tariq
    does it.

    Anyone who thinks he’d need to rehearse this should watch the Writing the
