Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is currently in London filming the sequel to Mary Poppins, posted a tweet after he viewed a recent video of Hamilton and In the Heights leading lady Mandy Gonzalez perform a medley of his tunes at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
Miranda posted, “When @_mandygonzalez mashes up a cut Nina tune from In The Heights & How Far I'll Go so you're sobbing in London.”
Gonzalez told Playbill.com, “I start with a cut Nina tune from the Off-Broadway production of In The Heights, and I then go into the song ’How Far I'll Go’ from Moana. Both songs are written by the incomparable Lin-Manuel Miranda. When I first heard ’How Far I'll Go’ in the movie theatre, tears came to my eyes, and I knew I had to sing it!”

Gonzalez, who currently stars in the Broadway production of Hamilton, will return to Feinstein's/54 Below March 12 at 7 PM. Click here for ticket information.
