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:
Mr. feeeeeeeeenaaaay you will not like how we treat John Adams but I love you oh NO oh JOY https://t.co/Ot0Ds4izjo
Then Daniels responded:

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.
