What’s next for new Pulitzer winner Lin-Manuel Miranda? The creator and star of the smash musical "Hamilton" sits down with Rach to talk about working with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on the upcoming Disney film, Moana – and he reveals that The Rock can really sing! 
 
He also chats with Rachael about what else he’s looking forward to this Broadway season, and whether "Hamilton" will become a television musical. During the show, he’s also joined by other special guests: His parents, Luz and Luis, and TLC’s Stacy London!

The Mirandas first met Stacy at an after-party following the "Hamilton" cast’s performance at the Grammys. Lin-Manuel told Stacy his mom desperately needed her help organizing a house full of clothing and other items that she’s been collecting for years. Stacy said she’d love to tackle the project!

On Friday’s show, Stacy shares some footage from her visit to the Mirandas’ house, and walks through some of her biggest organizing tips. Plus, Mrs. Miranda reveals a brand-new dress Stacy helped her create out of fabric from an old designer wedding dress that had been sitting in the closet.
