The Utah House of Representatives would like to congratulate Lin-Manuel Miranda and Hamilton cast, on their success on Broadway and at the Tony Awards!
What better way to show our appreciation and excitement that the musical is coming to Salt Lake City on its first run to the new Eccles Theater than to put five politically opposed super fan politicians in the same car! This idea was inspired by James Corden’s carpool karaoke but instead of stars who can sing we have policy wonks from across the political spectrum.
“The Hamilton musical connected our nation’s history, its founding fathers and what makes America what it is to the younger generation,” said Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes. “I’m pretty much convinced that it is going save this country.”
The Utah Legislature passed a concurrent resolution, H.C.R. 12, to honor Lin-Manuel Miranda for his contributions to art and civics education through his composition of the musical “Hamilton.” Copper Hills high school students performed Cabinet Battle for the House Education Committee during the 2016 General Session, click here to watch.
A group of “Super Fans” awaiting your arrival and apparently already camping out for tickets to this must-see musical.
Short on time? Watch to see how five politically opposed super fan politicians express their excitement and appreciation that the Hamilton musical is coming to Utah in under 2 minutes!
Who was in the car:
Speaker Greg Hughes, R
Mayor Ben McAdams, D
Senator Jim Dabakis, D
Representative Kim Coleman, R
Representative Ken Ivory, R
