Broadway is back, and so is Lin-Manuel Miranda and his show “Hamilton.” The 41-year-old New York-born Puerto Rican actor, singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and playwright gathered with his crew on West 46th Street in Manhattan.

Holding a megaphone, Miranda, Hamilton’s band, and actors stand outside the Richard Rodgers Theater just hours before showtime. “Hello, New York!” Lin-Manuel shouted to the people waiting to see the show after the pandemic shut down.

“Broadway is back! Thank you for supporting live theater. It has been a hard year and a half, and I’m so grateful for the shows that lead the way, like ‘Passover’ and ‘Waitress,’” He invited people to come out and support him.

Miranda proceeded to call the “Chicago,” “Wicked,” “Lion King,” and “Hamilton” cast members to sing the iconic theme song from the Martin Scorsese film New York, New York, composed by John Kander, with lyrics by Fred Ebb.
