The event continues the President and First Lady’s long-running relationship with the landmark musical. In 2009, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda first performed “The Hamilton Mixtape” for Michelle and Barack Obama at the White House as part of an evening celebrating spoken word and music. The song later became the opening number of Hamilton on Broadway.

The First Lady first saw the show Off-Broadway in spring 2015 at the Public Theater, and on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre last summer. The President first saw the Broadway show in the summer and returned last November for a Democratic Party fundraiser.
