Broadway Carpool Karaoke: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jane Krakowski, Audra McDonald, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson Sing-Feel the Windows Off the Joint

The Tony Awards, which — plug! — James Corden is hosting, is a time for the masters of one of our most exacting arts to celebrate the meticulous professionalism of their craft. Carpool Karaoke is … not that. It’s a chance to forget restraint! Ditch control! Just feel the music, like only a true theater nerd can. Broadway stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Audra McDonald, Jane Krakowski, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson do all of that with Corden, getting sloppy and laying it all on the line. They hit all of the musicals that once knocked your frail heart asunder: Rent, Les Miz, and, yep, Hamilton. Now, this part may sting: Corden raps Lafayette’s “Guns and Ships” verse better than you do.
