Creator of the Broadway hit 'Hamilton' says goodbye, quietly

Lin-Manuel Miranda ended his run in "Hamilton" at the Richard Rodgers Theatre Saturday night.

Up next for Manuel - he'll star in Disney's sequel to "Mary Poppins" in 2018 with Emily Blunt.

He played the title role of the Broadway musical inspired by the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton.

"I do love him", she said. His family said he wanted to celebrate his last show with his friends.

The White House also did not list Kerry as a member of the US delegation during a meeting of NATO's main political decision-making body that afternoon, according to two pool reports.

As of Saturday afternoon, resale tickets on Ticketmaster were selling for up to $5,062, with the lowest price at $1,764.

René Cruz, 54, a theater professional from Santa Monica, California, is seeing the show a second time, and specifically bought a ticket to this last Miranda performance.

Set to the sounds of the West Wing theme song (a personal favorite of Miranda's), the final curtain call was met with loud applause, as Soo, Miranda, Odom and exiting ensemble member Ariana DeBose (also known as "the bullet") took a bow in unison. "When we had our first lottery 700 people showed up, and we didn't know what to do with all of that, so I just got up and said a few words... and it's turned into this".

Many long-running Broadway shows including "Jersey Boys", "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Chicago" have gone through numerous cast changes without losing momentum and experts say "Hamilton" will manage the transition well because it's never been a star-driven show.

Some onlookers were disappointed that Mr. Miranda hadn't made more of an appearance, but others took solace in the fact that they would catch one more sighting of Jennifer Lopez.
