"No one's moved more mountains than him," Lin-Manuel said of Luis. *WATCH: Lin-Manuel Miranda Reveals What His Son Thought After Finally Seeing 'Mary Poppins Returns'* Opening night marked the first of a 24-show run, which will donate 100 percent of profits to the Flamboyan Arts Fund. The organization launched in a partnership with the Miranda family and the Flamboyan Foundation to boost arts and culture throughout Puerto Rico. In addition, the production aims to bring awareness to continued relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Maria. The 2017 storm devastated the island nation and left more than $90 billion in damages. So far, the new "Hamilton" is already a smash success. The Los Angeles Times reports that Friday's sold-out crowd gave an extended standing ovation mere minutes into the first act, when Lin-Manuel appeared on stage and introduced himself as the titular historic figure. It's the first time he's reprised the role since leaving the original Broadway production in 2016.
