For those of us who haven’t scored a ticket to Hamilton, PBS’ upcoming documentary about the smash Broadway musical is expected to be the next best thing.


Hamilton’s America, part of the public broadcaster’s Great Performance series, features interviews with the cast and various other personalities, along with some footage of a live performance of the revolutionary musical filmed this summer.

Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted that the footage of the show in its entirety is going “in a vault at Gringotts for a bit probly.” But we’ll get to see a bit of it in the 90-minute documentary.

PBS just released a 30-second trailer for the doc. Watch it below for peeks at moments with Jimmy Fallon, Barack Obama, and, of course, Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Hamilton’s America airs on PBS on Friday, Oct. 21 at 9 p.m. ET.
