News   Six-Year-Old Rewrites Ending of Hamilton — and Lin-Manuel Miranda Performs It! Iain Armitage, the six-year-old theatrical wunderkind who reviews and blogs about Broadway shows, has written a new "nicer" ending for the forthcoming Broadway musical Hamilton. But unlike the rewrites you might have done as a young fan, Armitage's has actually been performed by the delighted star of the show, in costume.

Armitage, who is a fan of Hamilton, got the revised script to author Miranda, who also plays the title role, and he performed it with co-star Leslie Odom Jr.
