Miranda revealed on Twitter Monday that he and wife Vanessa Nadal took their son to see the first act of “Hamilton” for his third birthday. (The second act, Miranda explained, would have to wait a few years.)
In advance of his 3rd birthday, we took lil man to Act One of Hamilton on Saturday. His comments in this thread... pic.twitter.com/e3hBugEsnI— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) November 6, 2017
To the joy of Miranda’s 1.87 million Twitter followers (and us), the MacArthur genius documented his son’s reactions.
Sebastian — who needed two booster seats — was apparently most concerned about the show’s set during the opening number. Two songs — “My Shot” and “Yorktown” — earned “punching noises” and “air punching” from Sebastian, which sounds like the highest praise 3-year-olds can offer.
Miranda’s son also noticed an important part of King George III’s uniform.

He asked the important questions during “Meet Me Inside.”

(Maybe because we don't wear shoes inside? I dunno)
Yeah, why are they both wearing shoes? Sebastian also seemed to ship Aaron Burr and Hamilton, which we support.
When Hamilton came out and he and Burr sang together, Sebastian delightedly squealed, "SHE HAS TWO DADDIES!!!"— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) November 6, 2017

Overall, Miranda said, Sebastian dug his dad’s work, citing “the scary parts” as his favorite. He also commended the “kissing and fighting and singing.” Sounds like this kid’s got a future as a critic.
“He likes ‘Dear Theodosia’ because he thinks my wife wrote it,” Miranda said. “Beacuse she sings him to sleep with that song. If I try to sing it, he goes, ‘You did not write that song.’”
Kids. They’ll keep you humble.
