WASHINGTON (SBG) - In the second episode of his YouTube show, “Some Good News,” John Krasinski had a big treat for a young girl whose birthday plans were impacted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The actor and his wife Emily Blunt surprised 9-year-old “Hamilton” fan Aubrey with a virtual performance of her favorite song, “Alexander Hamilton,” by the original cast via Zoom. The 9-year-old fan looked shocked as cast members Lin-Manuel Miranda, Daveed Diggs, Leslie Odom Jr., and others joined in on the video call.
Aubrey was supposed to attend a “Hamilton” show in Florida on March 21 as a present for her ninth birthday but was unable to attend due to social distancing.
“We were supposed to see Hamilton in Jacksonville tonight—DD’s 9th bday present (seeing Hamilton has been her dream since she saw her 1st Broadway show last year), but we’re home watching Mary Poppins Returns instead. At least we’re safe & healthy,” her mother said in a tweet.
As if the surprise couldn't get any better, Krasinski announced that he would fly Aubrey and her mother to see “Hamilton” live on Broadway in New York City once restrictions are lifted.
