The musical mega-hit "Hamilton" is poised to officially become an international sensation with the opening of the London production on Thursday night. To commemorate the event, the show's creator Lin Manuel Miranda joined the West End cast with an epic mashup of classic pop hits from the Grammy Award-winning cast recording.

The clip is the latest in a digital #Ham4Ham show that began live in front of Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre where "Hamilton" plays. The live #Ham4Ham shows preceded the daily lottery drawings of 20 ten dollar front row seats to the sold-out show. Both the lottery and #Ham4Ham shows, which were hosted by Miranda, proved so popular that the NYPD had to shut down the street to accommodate the crowds. Eventually, in the interests of public safety, both the lottery and #Ham4Ham show moved online.

"Hamilton," which tells the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton during the years leading up to and following the American Revolution, opens on Thursday at London's newly rebuilt Victoria Palace Theatre.
