Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s heady mixture of hip-hop, American history, Broadway, and media frenzies, has racked up a record-breaking 16 nominations for Sunday’s Tony Awards. Now, CBS and Facebook have added another ingredient to the melting pot: clicking and dragging.
CBS posted a 360-degree video to Facebook of the cast performing Act I’s “Wait for It,” which you can view by clicking right here. (Sadly, Facebook 360 videos won’t work in Safari or Internet Explorer.) If you watch on a phone, you can scroll around in the video just by tilting and turning, which really sells the illusion that the entire cast of Hamilton is surrounding you, coldly staring, blocking every escape no matter which way you turn, and ceaselessly singing, singing, singing. It’s just the thing to whet your appetite for their special appearance at the Tony Awards this Sunday, only on CBS!
