During a recent interview on NBC, Michael Moore, who is currently making his Broadway debut in The Terms of My Surrender, asked Chris Hayes whether he was Pulitzer Prize winner Lin-Manuel Miranda's first director.

The All in with Chris Hayes host said that he indeed was the Hamilton creator's first director as a senior in high school, adding, “I can still hum the tunes of that show, which was a 20-minute musical that featured a maniacal fetal pig in a nightmare that he had cut up in biology class.”

The exchange between Moore and Hayes about Miranda can be viewed in the first minute of the video below:

The Terms of My Surrender continues through October 22 at the Belasco Theatre. The Tony-winning Hamilton plays the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
