"I Will See You There Sir": Lin-Manuel Miranda Tweets With 1776 Star

News   "I Will See You There Sir": Lin-Manuel Miranda Tweets With 1776 Star
Lin-Manuel Miranda, author and star of the musical Hamilton, has tweeted his excitement at word that the star of an earlier Founding Father musical, 1776, is planning to see his show. See their exchange, below.

Emmy Award-winner William Daniels, who starred in the Tony-winning 1969 musical 1776 and its 1972 movie adaptation, had earlier tweeted that he was planning to see the new musical, which is set in the same time period, with some of the same characters.

Miranda, who is a fan of classic musicals, tweeted:

Then Daniels responded:

And Miranda replied:

Daniels played Founding Father (and second U.S. president) John Adams in the earlier musical, about the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Adams is portrayed in 1776 as one of the primary movers in the American Independence movement. Adams does not appear as a character in Hamilton, but is dismissed as a lightweight in one of the songs. The "feeeeenaaay" reference is to the role of George Feeny that Daniels played on the ABC-TV series "Boy Meets World" and its sequel, the Disney Channel series "Girl Meets World."

Daniels, 88, did not specify in his tweets the date on which he plans to see Hamilton.
