The somewhat unknown scholar has become a household name in the US with its crisp hip hop beats, flawless theatrical performances and a majestic night at the Tony Awards. It was time for the original cast members to take their final bows in front of the audience.
Lin Manuel Miranda who played Alexander Hamilton performed his last show on Saturday night along with other co-stars Leslie Odom Jr. and Phillipa Soo.
All the departing cast members took their final bow to a packed theatre and applause. Miranda took the final stage with a standing ovation. Later, he popped his head out to wave and thank the fans that were standing outside in rain. It was an end of an era indeed on Saturday night.
While people have had mixed feelings about Miranda leaving the play, he gave them something else to talk about. His hair. It can be easily reckoned that the ponytail that he grew for the role or it might have just grown while he was working on the play has been iconic. It has led many to embrace his ponytail and his man bun that he wore usually when not onstage.
He might have decided that to finally shed Hamilton, the hair had to go as well because early Sunday morning, he tweeted a shot of his cut hair. He captioned the picture, “Teach 'em how to say goodbye”.
That’s right! The hair is gone. Lin is back to the short haircut. It’s caused a riot among fans who had especially grown their hair following Hamilton.
He flaunted the haircut with a Mohammed Ali shirt on a Morgan Satnley Hennessey event later. A picture of him in the studios with Jennifer Lopez also surfaced supporting short hair.
Miranda is currently gaining prominence with other projects. He is producing the soundtrack for Disney’s upcoming Moana and also starring alongside Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns.
