Well, you can watch the first eight minutes of In the Heights on YouTube for the twelfth time, or you can enjoy Miranda’s valentine of a musical number “Broadway’s Back” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which finds the pair welcoming back shows like Phantom of the Opera, Six, Chicago, Dear Evan Hansen, West Side Story, Moulin Rouge, Aladdin, Wicked, Hamilton, Book of Mormon, and Come From Away. The Tony Awards Will Finally Happen on September 26, on CBS and Paramount+

Hamilton, The Lion King, and Wicked Will Return to Broadway September 14

Tags: Can we at least try? “A night at the theater, my favorite kind of date/I even miss the people who always show up late.” Joining them is Miranda’s In the Heights costars Jimmy Smits and Olga Merediz, Late Show’s own Melania Trump Laura Benanti, Kristin Chenoweth, Christopher Jackson, and Phylicia Rashad, not to mention two dozen professional dancers who haven’t had a chance to perform for a live studio audience for 15 months. Look at them go! But what will get you through Thursday?! “I miss drinking wine out of sippy cups/And a $20 snack,” sings Miranda. Can we please fit 15 months worth of dance numbers into the next three months before Broadway officially opens again? Broadway won’t be returning until September, but director John M. Chu’s adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights arrives in theaters and on HBO Max this Thursday, so hopefully that’ll get you through the summer. Related
