NEW YORK _ Stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and husband, Matthew Broderick, Samuel L. Jackson, Jon Bon Jovi, and Laverne Cox have attended the Broadway opening of “Hamilton.”

“I was blown away. It is revolutionary, it will revolutionize American theatre. I am in love with ‘Hamilton,”’ said Cox, who saw it downtown and went to the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Thursday night for a second helping.

Actress Judith Light, who is shooting the TV show “Transparent” in Los Angeles, flew in just to see the show.

Few shows in recent memory have excited the New York theatre community like the hip-hop flavoured biography about Alexander Hamilton, the nation’s first treasury secretary.

Other celebrities in the audience included Diane Sawyer, Lucy Liu, Rosie O’Donnell, Charlie Rose, and Busta Rhymes.
