“I’ll tell you my sad Beyonce story, which is that the night Beyoncé and Jay Z came to Hamilton I had a 104 degree fever and I could not get to the theater to perform in the show.It was my first time being sick. It was my first time calling out,” Lin-Manuel told Zane Lowe on Apple Music. “And at noon they said, ‘Beyonce‘s coming tonight.’ And I was like, ‘Pull the IV out, I can do it.’ My wife was like you, ‘You have to stay home.’”
After Beyonce saw Hamilton, an interaction she had with one of the cast members actually went viral!
Hamilton is now available to stream on Disney+.
