Ok, the title really could have been longer. Actor John Krasinski (The Office, Jack Ryan) has a YouTube series titled “Some Good News“. In Episode 2, he, his wife, and friends rendered a young girl utterly speechless when they surprised her on a Zoom call.
Oh, the friends included Lin-Manuel Miranda, and the cast of Hamilton.
Missing Hamilton due to COVID-19
This young girl was due to go see Hamilton with her mother, but their trip was cancelled due to the pandemic. Her mother tweeted to Lin-Manuel about this, and Krasinski picked up on this.
He called this young girl, and what followed is just fantastic:
One of my favourite parts is around 11 minutes when she is utterly speechless as Lin-Manuel joins the call.
It definitely gets better, though, as Manuel’s friends (aka, the cast of Hamilton) join the call too to perform her favourite song from the production.
