Meryl Streep Sang ‘The Room Where It Happens’ from Hamilton, Changed the Lyrics to Be About Women’s Rights: When Is She Going to Star in an All-Female Hamilton?

By

Hero Meryl Streep sang a rendition of “The Room Where It Happens” from Hamilton at the Women in the World Summit on Friday, because she is a cool celebrity. In a speech that closed the summit, Streep talked about how far women have come before breaking into the chorus of “The Room Where It Happens” with her own rewritten lyrics: “All of a sudden we’re in the room where it happens / the room where it happens / the room where it happens / Women are suddenly in the room where it happens / the room where it happens.” Watch the video above; she starts singing at 15:57. Needless to say, the audience lost their minds. “I couldn’t resist that,” she said after her mini performance. (Streep saw Hamilton last year.) When are we going to see an all-female Hamilton starring Meryl Streep?
