Lin-Manuel Miranda is now in Puerto Rico performing his smash hit musical Hamilton and Jimmy Fallon took a trip there to record a full episode of The Tonight Show! All profits from the Broadway musical's Puerto Rico run will go to the Flamboyan Arts Fund, which Miranda co-launched to preserve, amplify and sustain the arts in the country.

Watch out Lin-Manuel Miranda, there's another Alexander Hamilton on the block.

"We had the dress rehearsal last night, and there's a song in the show called 'Hurricane, '" Miranda said.

While taking Fallon on a culinary adventure, Andrés will discuss the ongoing work of World Central Kitchen in Puerto Rico, where they're revitalizing the island's food economy with grants and training for local smallholder farmers. The three-time Tony victor has brought "Hamilton" to Puerto Rico and put the wig back on to raise money and awareness for those who are still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

"You have no idea how much it means to people that you're here", he said. "And the opening line of that song is, 'In the eye of the hurricane there is quiet.' And so it sort of brought all that back".

"People are so proud", he later added.

Fallon's trip to Puerto Rico wasn't only about "Hamilton". During the episode Fallon will be venturing around the island showcasing its breathtaking beauty and experiencing some of the exciting activities that Puerto Rico has to offer.

It's all Bad Bunny's doing, as he struts in a yellow ensemble, chewing an apple and leading the pack in front of Fallon, Black Thought, and Questlove. Check them out in the videos below.
