One last time.

The original cast of Hamilton took a final Broadway bow on Saturday night (July 10), marking the show's last performance with leads Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr. and Phillipa Soo.

Aaron Paul, Jane Fonda, John Kerry, devout fans Rosie O’Donnell and Mariska Hargitay, Edward Norton and Jennifer Lopez (with whom Miranda recently collaborated) were among those in the audience at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The New York City production has been virtually sold out for months, with resale tickets for the original cast's final performance running upwards of $12,000 a seat.

Set to the sounds of the West Wing theme song (a personal favorite of Miranda's), the final curtain call was met with loud applause, as Soo, Miranda, Odom and exiting ensemble member Ariana DeBose (also known as "the bullet") took a bow in unison. After repeatedly being prodded by Christopher Jackson, Miranda then stepped forward for a solo bow. Despite shouts from the audience for a speech, he simply stood genuinely moved with his hand held on his chest.

"It was so emotional -- the words, the music, the actors, the triumph," Lopez told THR. "It's now a part of Broadway history. I am so proud of Lin and happy I was able to be there with my children, Max and Emme."

After the performance, Daveed Diggs and Javier Munoz celebrated by taking shots from a Grammy Award. Meanwhile, Miranda chopped off his role-required locks and debuted his clean look at the show's after-party.

The composer and star's longtime onstage alternate Munoz will take over the titular role next week, alongside Lexi Lawson as Eliza Schuyler Hamilton. Brandon Victor Dixon will play Aaron Burr beginning in mid-August.
