"Hamilton" is the one Broadway show people would perform crazy feats to attend. Twice now, I've stood in the cold rain, waiting to hear my name called as a winner of the ticket lottery to no avail. The show has captured the national spotlight, mainly because it tells a story about America's Founding Fathers via hip-hop music and an almost universally nonwhite cast. And as a result, tickets are pretty hard to come by.
But to get a glimpse of the musical, you might not even need a ticket after all. You just have to watch the 2016 Grammys on Feb. 15, when a live performance from "Hamilton" is set to air during the show, broadcast live from "Hamilton"'s Broadway home, the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York.
Creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted out the good news on Wednesday morning (Feb. 3).
"Hamilton" is up for Best Musical Theater Album at the Grammys, which airs Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Adele, Kendrick Lamar and Justin Bieber are also performing, and Lady Gaga is doing a tribute to David Bowie. So, yeah. It's pretty much Christmas in February.
