Is this real life?! tick, tick...BOOM! star Lin-Manuel Miranda had a special guest drop by to see him after the dress rehearsal of the new revival: Stage and screen favorite Raul Esparza, star of the 2001 off-Broadway cast of tick, tick...BOOM! Miranda tweeted about the emotional meeting, “The first person at my dressing room door after the show. I had no idea. There are no words.” Esparza, who played the role of Jon after composer Jonathan Larson’s death in 1996, is now passing the torch to Miranda. Check out this Hot Shot of their starry reunion, then see the new Encores! revival at New York City Center from June 25 through 28.
