Just call it “The car where it happens.”

Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda joined Late Late Show host James Corden for a special Broadway-themed edition of Corden’s popular “Carpool Karaoke” series Monday night.

Six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and 30 Rock alum Jane Krakowski also got in on the fun, singing their way though some of the Great White Way’s most well-known show tunes.

Miranda and Corden started the ride by rapping two songs from Miranda’s record-breaking musical, including the show’s opening number “Alexander Hamilton.” Corden had previously rapped a part of the song on his hit late-night show alongside Rosie O’Donnell.

The 37-year-old host then took the reins from the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, giving Miranda a history lesson by rapping through the speedy “Guns and Ships” – the first time the Hamilton track has been heard on TV.

This wasn’t the first time Miranda has rapped Hamilton songs on CBS. In February, the 36-year-old and his cast performed during the 2016 Grammy Awards – moments before accepting the Grammy for best musical theater album.

McDonald, Ferguson, and Krakowski joined the ride later on, harmonizing their way through the emotional “Seasons of Love” from 1996’s Rent and “You’re Just Too Good to Be True” from 2005’s jukebox musical Jersey Boys.

The whole car came together at the end, for an epic performance of “One Day More” from the 1987 film Les Misérables.

The special Broadway edition of “Carpool Karaoke” comes as Corden preps to host this Sunday’s Tony Awards, which air live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET. Hamilton is expected to be the big winner after nabbing 16 nominations – the most of any show in history.
