Leslie Odom Jr. Remembers the Time Prince Came to See Hamilton, Said Nothing, Met No One, and Then Gave It a Rave Review

Even if you’re starring in a universally well-reviewed and award-winning Broadway musical, you’re still not prepared for the night when Prince appears in a box in the audience, never once taking off his sunglasses during the show. Prince invited the cast of Hamilton to one of his secret shows in Harlem, as Leslie Odom Jr. explained on Colbert, and then he went to one of their not-so-secret events the next night. Prince didn’t go backstage to meet anyone in the cast and crew. But the next morning he tweeted,”THE BEST HISTORY CLASS EVER!” When the master of shade writes something like that, you know you’ve done something right.
