Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Bringing Hamilton To Your TV Screens To Teach You A Drunk History Lesson!

| Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesAlcoholEducationalLin-Manuel Miranda

Four pours and seven beers ago.

If you would have told us that a story about one of our Founding Fathers getting shot to death would translate into the most popular Broadway musical in ages… we never would have believed you.

But luckily, Lin-Manuel Miranda trusted his instincts and blessed us with Hamilton: An American Musical – and now he's about to do it all again for the small screen!

That's right — Comedy Central announced on Friday that Lin will be helming an upcoming episode of Drunk History this season… and while no one else has been cast just yet, it'd be a national tragedy for them to not use Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsbery, and Leslie Odom, Jr. to some extent!

Interestingly enough, DH's first-ever televised episode featured Michael Cera as Alexander Hamilton, Jake Johnson as Aaron Burr, and Ashley Johnson as Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, so Lin's going to have his work cut out for him in order to teach us something new.

Although… he's already won a Grammy, a Peabody, and 11 Tonys for his first retelling of the deadly duel — so if anyone's up for the challenge, it's him!

Will U be watching Lin-Manuel Miranda's Drunk History debut when Season Four premieres Tuesday, September 27 on Comedy Central??

However, unlike all the other teasers… this one DEFINITELY makes it seem as though the audience will somehow be able to participate with the event like they do at live performances — count us in!!!

While we're not so sure the convention has the same exact demo as the movie musical… we'll take any excuse for new music.

We're shivering with antici…

We're guessing when James Corden came up with the idea of singing with celebs in Carpool Karaoke, he never thought he'd score the FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES!

But Michelle Obama isn't just an inspiring political figure — she's also a cool mom with great taste in music!

But was the FLOTUS dancing to Beyoncé enough to make her the best of all time??

Tickets For Lin-Manuel Miranda's Final Hamilton Performance Are Selling For As Much As $20,000 Apiece… Seriously!

You may have no choice but to throw away your shot after hearing this…

It's no secret that Hamilton is already a Broadway classic after winning 11 of its record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations, but the Alexander Hamilton hype train may have just officially gone off the rails.

That's because tickets for Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo, and Leslie Odom, Jr.'s final performance are selling for upwards of $20,000!!!

Seriously — the trio are set to take their final bows this Saturday, and if you had any hope of seeing them in action one last time, you better be willing to fork over some serious cash on StubHub.

But even if you wanted to get the cheapest seat in the entire Richard Rodgers Theater, hopefully you have a spare $2,700 for the regularly priced $129 scraps being scalped on Craigslist!

While we don't blame anyone for wanting to take part in the historic musical… we can't imagine any 3-hour engagement being worth the price of an affordable mid-sized sedan.

How much would U pay to see LMM LIVE onstage??
