The Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical has roots in a Joe Biden-inclusive administration, as Miranda first performed an early version of the opening number under the title The Hamilton Mixtape at a White House event in 2009. The company also hosted an added performance of the hot ticket to benefit Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016.
