‘Hamilton’ Cast Teams With James Corden for Hilarious Tony Awards Opening (VIDEO)

As per usual with an awards show centered around American theater, The Tony Awards opened with a big number, this one centered around current pop culture sensation Hamilton. But this opening number had a twist, as it was used to introduce host James Corden.

The opening is an ode of sorts to Corden himself, as the introductory song to Hamilton is repurposed in honor of the “chubby guy from Into the Woods who played The Baker”. It’s pretty great, as most things Hamilton tend to be. It’s already been a huge night for both Corden and for Hamilton, so this was a terrific way to get things started.
