The cast of the game-changing musical Hamilton left Broadway on Monday and made a trip to Washington to visit the White House.

"Let’s get started. Enjoy the show, everybody!" —@POTUS: https://t.co/qoijfA70kZ #Bam4Ham

Musical creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda geeked out with Treasury Secretary Jack Lew before a portrait of Hamilton himself, who was the first man to hold that role.

Three Treasury Secretaries (2 IRL and 1 on stage) meet in the #roomwhereithappens.

And the cast even performed a few of the numbers you've had in your head since you discovered the incredible soundtrack.
