Following a standing ovation from the crowd, the orchestra played the theme from The West Wing as Miranda took center stage and bowed.

EARLIER: It looks like everyone will be in the room where it happens following Lin-Manuel Miranda’s final Hamilton show. The musical’s curtain call will be broadcast via Facebook Live after the Saturday night show, the last for Miranda as well as costars Leslie Odom Jr. and Phillipa Soo.

According to a release, it’s expected the curtain will fall at 10:45 p.m. ET.

The live-stream will cap off a day of Hamilton celebration. Earlier on Saturday, Odom – who plays Aaron Burr in the musical and won a Tony Award for his work last month – dedicated his final two shows to the memories of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, both of whom were shot and killed by police officers this week, as well as the five Dallas police officers who were murdered by a sniper after a peaceful protest. “The most profound legacy of [Hamilton] will be that it has set a table for strangers to connect, to have meaningful conversations,” Odom wrote. “Hamilton has been our common ground. I am excited and cautiously optimistic for a real and lasting spiritual awakening amongst us. May the conversation continue. I’ll see you out here in these streets. Onward. We have work to do.”

The official Hamilton YouTube page also released a tribute video to the original cast, scored to the show’s song “The Story of Tonight.”

Head to the Hamilton Facebook page to watch the live stream.
