While staying at home, host Jimmy Fallon conducted an episode of The Tonight Show: Home Edition with his wife Nancy Juvonen running the camera and daughters Winnie and Frances providing all sorts of on-camera entertainment.
After doing his opening bit, Fallon went off into a quieter area of his home to remotely interview rockstar playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda who was in his Washington Heights home via Zoom. The two men spoke a bit about their careers and a lot about their kids. Manuel later performed “Dear Theodosia” from his award-winning play Hamilton before signing off.

Fallon will be spotlighting different charities for every episode he records at home. This episode with Lin-Manuel Miranda focused on raising money for Broadway Cares. a non-profit that raises money for stage workers to obtain health care, emergency financial assistance, and counseling during this outbreak.
