In one of the more deeply obscure "Saturday Night Live" segments of recent memory -- but one that will be deeply satisfying to all theater geeks -- "Hamilton" creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda heads a hip-hop-infused, semi-risqué imaginary cast party for a high school production of "The Crucible." As is so often the case in real life, the party features far more drama than the play. As the lyric notes, it's admittedly "kind of weird that the teacher came to the 'Crucible' cast party!"
