Lin-Manuel Miranda rewrote a ‘Hamilton' rap in honor of Hillary

This image was removed due to legal reasons.

Yesterday, the theater community's brightest stars (not to mention some of Hollywood's) gathered at the St. James Theater for Broadway for Hillary, a fundraiser to benefit the Democratic nominee's presidential campaign. Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, Jon Hamm, Lena Dunham, and emcee Billy Crystal were among those in attendance, as well as Bill and Chelsea Clinton.


But no one made quite as big an impression as Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda and Renée Elise Goldsberry, the musical's original Angelica Schuyler, who debuted an alternate version of "Ten Duel Commandments" rewritten as a call to political action for Clinton supporters.


Choice couplets:

Call some undecideds in your crew
Your cousins in Ohio maybe try and flip ‘em blue

We know that our Hillary is no quitter
We watch as her opponent sits and fiddles with his Twitter

Tim Kaine in the membrane
Tim Kaine in the brain

As Miranda asks, anybody here want to shatter a glass ceiling?
