11:35 pm
not much. i mean, i know it's an unincorporated territory of the united states, about 1,000 miles southeast of miami. and i know it's known locally as borinquen, from the indigenous taino name borinken, meaning land of the valiant lord. oh, and it was colonized by spain in 1493 after the arrival of columbus, and remained in spanish possession for the next four centuries. and the u.s. acquired it in 1898 after the spanish-american war under the terms of the treaty of paris. and it's political status has been a matter of public debate ever since. >> tariq: okay but -- >> jimmy: oh, and its chief exports include rum, and electronics, and pharmaceuticals, and chemicals, and medical equipment. i can't believe i forgot medical equipment, and of course canned tuna. other than that, i don't know much about puerto rico. why? >> tariq: "hamilton" is playing in puerto rico and we got tickets. want to come? >> jimmy: wepa! ♪

11:50 pm
>> jimmy: in your writing. >> well, what's really weird is that different things come out. different things come to the forefront depending on the audience and the situation. we had the dress rehearsal last night. and there's a song in this show called "hurricane." and i could barely get through it last night. because it is about that -- you know, what i remember from hurricane maria so vividly was the quiet. it was, like, literally not being able to hear from the island in that sort of immediate aftermath. and the opening line of that song is, "in the eye of the hurricane there's quiet." and so it sort of brought all that back and -- >> jimmy: do you remember writing it? >> yeah, and never in a million years imagining it would resonate in this particular way. >> jimmy: were there relatives here that you couldn't get a a hold of when -- during the hurricane? >> yeah, yeah. i was -- you know, those first few days after the hurricane, we couldn't hear from -- we didn't hear from anyone. the entire island's power and cell towers were knocked out. my uncle, my father's brother, elvin, we found out he was
11:51 pm
okay. because someone posted a a picture of him on a supply line on facebook. and that's how we knew. and someone was like, "your uncle." but it was -- it was -- for us, it was five days of silence. for many people it was days and weeks. >> jimmy: wow. >> that's what it was like us out, sort of, in the diaspora. >> jimmy: i can't even imagine. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: i can't even that. >> yeah, it was really scary. and it was five months before my family, like, my uncle and my aunt had power in their, sort of, mountain town in vega alta. five months of generators and going to get gas for the generators. and i -- i -- there's not a a more resilient people than the puerto rican people. and the aftermath of hurricane maria sort of proves that. >> jimmy: i know it's got be beyond emotional. how are you going to hold it together? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: you've got to get ready for a 25-minute standing ovation. >> i have to -- i have to sort of -- >> jimmy: i'm crying just thinking about it. >> no, no. i have to sort of harness that energy. and really we're here. because when i brought my first show here in the heights, it was so emotional to bring -- to bring this show -- my first
11:52 pm
show that was really about the people who left their islands and came to the mainland and their kids, and what does home mean for the kids of those people who made that journey. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and then to bring it back here was so emotional. and this is also a story like that. this is someone who left the caribbean to go to new york. and so to then, you know, bring it back here, bring it back to the caribbean, it's these weird full-circle moments. >> jimmy: all of the stuff you're doing, i think the first thing you did was made an all-star, like, "we are the world" song. >> yeah, yeah, well, i was -- i was on vacation when it hit. and i -- so i had sort of time on my hands. and i had this terrible silence. and i fill silence with music. that's what i know how to do. and so i started writing a a song. and i just thought, "well, what can we all -- what can we all get behind?" what is the lyric? and so the lyric is literally the names of all of the 78 towns in puerto rico and sort of putting that together. and then i just called all the latino all-stars.
11:53 pm
i called the people i did know. i literally tweeted at the people i didn't know. it was really extraordinary. everyone wanted to help. and everyone -- everyone didn't -- everyone wanted to do something and so -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> you know, from camila cabello, to fat joe, to marc anthony, to stephen sondheim, who i had to call to get permission to sample "west side story." >> jimmy: no way. >> for "almost like praying." >> jimmy: that's right. >> so i called him and the bernstein estate. the leonard bernstein estate to get permission to use that for free. so all the money could really go to relief efforts. >> jimmy: and you were working with them but also working with american express. >> yeah, so i've been working with american express really on their small business saturday, which we do always the saturday after thanksgiving and really promoting local businesses in my neighborhood, washington heights. and we've just extended that to puerto rico. 'cause it's really important that when you come to puerto rico, you know, we're trying to promote tourism, and people coming and visiting our island, not just sort of going to the hotels. you'll stay in wonderful hotels. but then also finding that local business that means something to you and supporting them while their here.
11:54 pm
because they make puerto rico great. >> jimmy: and then tell me about flamboyan arts fund. >> yeah, so as you know, it sort of became a full-time job for me, just the relief efforts in the immediate aftermath of maria. and then we thought -- because we knew this was sort of a year and a half down the pike. well, what can we do with the production of "hamilton" we're bringing to the island? and we really wanted to focus on artists. this is a show. this has changed lives of so many artists who have worked on this show. and we thought let's raise money for artists on the island. because they're never remembered in recovery efforts, in rebuilding efforts. and they're going to be the ones who tell the story of this hurricane. they're the ones who were here. they're the ones who lived inside that silence. and so we're trying to raise $15 million throughout the run of this show. and we'll be sort of creating these multi-year grants for artists. it's museums. it's individual artists. it's theater groups. it's film groups. it's artists on the island that are going to benefit. >> jimmy: and how has it been here? >> amazing. i mean just really amazing.
11:55 pm
people are so proud. people are so happy that, you know, this show is coming. and that, you know, i just keeping hearing it. like, "thank you for everything you're doing." and also it's just -- it's so -- it's just so wonderful. it's also been my first time bringing my kids to the island. so they're like getting their real puerto rico life. >> jimmy: have they seen the play yet? >> so sebastian saw me in the show for the first time. he had seen act one. i took him for his 3rd birthday to see act one last year. and now he's four. and he saw both acts. and i prepped him. i was like, "everything daddy does on that stage is pretend. kissing that lady, being shot by that guy." >> jimmy: don't get -- yeah. >> that's all -- >> jimmy: that's therapy, yeah. >> that's all pretend. >> jimmy: that's future therapy. >> we sort of talked through it. but he was really proud. i mean, he still sings the weird al version of "the schuyler sisters." he goes, "aunt peggy --" >> jimmy: do you know you put the first polka song ever to be on the billboard 200? >> that's crazy.
11:56 pm
>> jimmy: with weird al. >> which was really the goal the whole time. >> jimmy: of course it was. [ talking over each other ] >> we're getting a polka on the billboard 200. >> jimmy: but you also had the president -- president obama charted in the r&b charts because of you. >> well, i -- you get a little credit for that. because i think he got a taste of it with "slow jam the news." i think he was like, "i could do this." >> jimmy: "i could do this." yeah. >> "i could do this." and you know how he's a little competitive. >> jimmy: yeah. >> so when i pitched him, i pitched him in august of this year. and i asked for a meeting. and i sat with him. and i said, "so we do these things called the hamildrop." and before i'd finish the sentence, he goes, "do you want me to sing? i'll sing." >> jimmy: that's the new -- that's the new obama. the old obama we did it. because we did "slow jam" twice. >> yeah. >> jimmy: but the first time he came on was "late night." he was a brand new president. and he came on. he was very, obviously presidential, but very kind of like, "yep, nope, yep." [ laughter ] and i go -- at the end, i went -- you go, "oh, yeah." and he goes, "nope." [ laughter ] well, i would love it if you went, like, "oh, yeah." he goes, "no, i'll just say, 'oh, yeah. oh, yeah.'" so i go, "okay." second time we had him back was
11:57 pm
after eight years. i had wrote this thing in the script -- i go -- i wrote him a a rhianna thing. and i go, "in this part want you to go, 'work, work, work, work, work.'" like rihanna said, "work, work, work, work, work." and he goes, "why do i have to say that? can't i be like -- ♪ work work work work" >> woah! >> jimmy: i go, "slow it down." so then i go, "no." so the roles switched. >> amazing. he's like, "let me sing it." >> jimmy: no. >> yeah. >> jimmy: this is not a good -- >> no, no, i told him, i said -- >> jimmy: don't want to ruin it now. >> i said, "sir, we'll need an hour of your time." he goes, "i won't need an hour." >> jimmy: no, exactly. [ talking over each other ] "where's the mike? turn me up --" >> "one take obama. that's what they used to call me." >> jimmy: "turn me up in the headphones. let's go." >> that's an exact quote. he quoted "the west wing" not me. >> jimmy: did he really? >> "one take obama. that's what they used to call me." >> jimmy: my gosh. i have to tell you, when came on the show to tell us that you were doing this and bringing "hamilton" to puerto rico, i was like, "i don't know if anyone understands what a big job that is." >> it is a big job. >> jimmy: how impossible. it's nearly impossible. >> yeah. >> jimmy: to get everyone. because you have this wardrobe, lighting, makeup.
11:58 pm
and everyone is here with their families. >> well, we have incredible producers here at "hamilton." and we also -- you know, the secret weapon of this is luis miranda, my dad, who has been -- >> jimmy: i love your dad. >> who has aged five years this year in making this happen. >> jimmy: he still looks great though. >> and has been just working tirelessly -- >> jimmy: how did you pull this off? >> i mean, it's just hours and hours of hard work. i mean really from everybody down the line. and it's just been sort of extraordinary. >> jimmy: well, when you came on and talked about that, i was inspired. and we were inspired, "the tonight show." i said, "if they can do multiple shows, we can do one show. even if we have no budget or i'm just using just an iphone to record." >> you have no idea how much it means to people that you're here, ever since you announced it, the fact that you are here, you know. for a glorious -- for a a glorious few weeks, it went from, "how do i get 'hamilton' tickets," to "how do i get 'jimmy fallon' tickets in puerto rico?" [ laughter ] you mean so much to people here. and it really means the word that you came down and shone a a spotlight on the island. >> jimmy: it's because of you,
