The 41st annual ceremony of the Kennedy Center Honors took place earlier this month in Washington and aired Wednesday night on CBS.
If you're a Hamilton fan like me, I know you wish you could have seen the original cast perform the show. So this might be the next best thing.
Writer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail, choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, and music director Alex Lacamoire were all honored at the ceremony. Miranda reunited with Christopher Jackson, the musical's original George Washington, to sing "One Last Time."
The Kennedy Center Honors also reunited the original “Schuyler Sisters”: Renée Elise Goldsberry, Phillipa Soo, and Jasmine Cephas Jones, to perform their eponymous song from the musical. And it was even more special with another fellow Hamilton alum, Anthony Ramos, introducing them.
This year’s Kennedy Center Honorees also included Cher, Reba McEntire, composer Philip Glass, and jazz musician Wayne Shorter.
