NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: CONTAINS FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY With 11 Tony awards, a Pulitzer Prize and a new haircut, Lin-Manuel Miranda bowed out of his hit Broadway show, "Hamilton" on Saturday. Miranda debuted shorter locks at the after party, which he cut immediately after playing the lead in the musical for the last time. The audience gave Miranda a one-minute standing ovation during his first appearance in the opening number. Celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Jane Fonda and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry were among the lucky ones to snag a ticket to the show, which is sold out until 2017. "Hamilton", a hip-hop musical with a multiracial cast about U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, who was killed in an 1804 duel with Vice President Aaron Burr, has become a pop culture phenomenon. Miranda has already lined up his next gig, playing a street lamplighter in Disney's upcoming "Mary Poppins Returns" sequel. Also leaving the show on Saturday was actress Phillipa Soo and Tony winner, Leslie Odom, Jr.
