Following his tweet, Miranda also hung around the Twittersphere to answer fan replies, many of which were questions about the song.Miranda’s gift of new material comes at a perfect time, as New York continues to announce the cancellation of events and large gatherings amid the current COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this afternoon, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced a mandate of no gatherings of 500 people or more going into effect tomorrow at 5 p.m. local time. Understandably, Broadway is no exception, as its venues attract hundreds of people from around the world to sold-out shows. Currently, the Broadway League announced that all performances, including Hamilton, will be suspended through April 12.Similar cancellations have been rolled out in LA and San Francisco, as well.[video_embed id='1896040']RELATED: Lin-Manuel Miranda shouts out the first ‘Hamilton’ performance in Canada.[/video_embed]To appease heartbroken fans, the official Hamilton Twitter account also sprung into action by doing a #HamAtHome show tonight, in which they live-tweeted the lyrics from the show in real time.
