Lin-Manuel Miranda created 'Hamilton.' But now he's finally leaving Alexander's role.
Miranda performed his last show in the lead role Saturday night to thunderous applause. The audience gave him a standing ovation as soon as he got on stage, singing, "My name is Alexander Hamilton," according to USA Today.
'Hamilton' tickets are already extremely hard to come by, but last night was exceptionally pricey. Seats for Miranda's last ride cost up to $20,000 on StubHub.
Of course, Secretary of State John Kerry, Jennifer Lopez and Rosie O'Donnell all found a way in.

The orchestra played a seemingly impromptu version of 'The West Wing' theme as Miranda took his final bow. Miranda said the show was one of his major sources of inspiration for 'Hamilton.'
