Aubrey said she watched Mary Poppins Returns in lieu of seeing Hamilton because the film co-starred Miranda (no, she's never seen The Office). The highlight though? Surprising Aubrey, the biggest Hamilton fan who couldn't see the show due to lockdown in Jacksonville in the US. Before sharing a virtual performance, featuring stars including Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs and Lin-Manuel Miranda who all joined in via Zoom - not bad eh?

Krasinski and his wife, Emily Blunt, gifted Aubrey with tickets and airfare to see the show in Manhattan once quarantine efforts lift.

"No matter how dark it gets, there's always good in the world", he says.

Fans praised the Quiet Place director for sharing good news in what is an undoubtedly hard time for everyone with the coronavirus crisis.

The new episode even included a weather report from Robert De Niro, who drily announced: "It looks, uh, pretty good".

Last week, Krasinski invited Steve Carell onto the show, where they chatted about The Office.

As the title suggests, it's a roundup - anchored by Krasinski, with input from special guests - of day-brightening stories about people doing good in the world.

Let's all bring some positivity, support and fun to anyone who might find themselves in isolation as a result of the coronavirus spread.

Not only did Krasinski, flanked by wife Emily Blunt, promise to fly Aubrey and her mom to NY to see the show on Broadway in the future, he also recruited "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and original cast members like Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, Anthony Ramos, Okieriete Onaodowan, Phillipa Soo, and Christopher Jackson to perform opening song "Alexander Hamilton" over video chat.
