Krasinski highlights uplifting stories from around the world in "Some Good News." The episode on April 5 featured a special surpise for a 9-year-old girl who had to miss Hamilton because of show cancellations due to the global health crisis. Krasinski invited the girl on to his show via a Zoom video call and they were joined by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Hamilton cast members, including CCM Musical Theatre alumnus Andrew Chappelle (BFA, '09). They serenaded the young fan with the opening number of the hit musical, "Alexander Hamilton." Read more about the broadcast on Playbill.
