This week, the touring company of Hamilton visited Bush Sr. at his office in Houston to perform several songs from the musical, hoping to lift his spirits after a recent hospitalization and the death of his wife Barbara.
Bush('s employee on Twitter) called it an unforgettable performance. According to a representative, the 93-year-old hopes to see the show in full before going back to home to Maine.
Writer and former star of Hamilton—and outspoken liberal—Lin-Manuel Miranda called performing for the former Republican President an honor.
The honor is ours, sir. https://t.co/vT815vluaD— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) May 16, 2018
