Musical theater is typically underappreciated at the Grammys, but this year, "Hamilton" is getting a turn in the spotlight. The cast of the crazy popular Broadway show will perform their opening number during the show, on Feb. 15. "We've never done any live performances in front of a televised audience," "Hamilton" producer Jeffrey Seller tells USA Today.
While it's a huge honor to perform at the Grammys, the cast is making the awards show come to them as to not get in the way of any of their scheduled performances. Instead of flying out to Los Angeles to perform at the Staples Center, where the Grammys are taking place, the performance will be broadcast live from the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York. "Once they said, 'We'll come to you,' we knew it would work," Seller says.
