    The show aims to highlight Puerto Rico's culture as well as what it still faces after the disaster, including restoration estimated by the government at more than $130 billion.

    "A tremendous amount of work has gone into rebuilding these vibrant, beautiful communities, and there is still so much more that needs to be done — and we want to continue to help," Fallon said.

    The New York-born Miranda, who's performing in his award-winning Broadway musical "Hamilton" starting Friday in San Juan, is of Puerto Rican heritage and regularly visited the territory as a youngster.

    In a statement, Miranda said he appreciated that Fallon was "breaking with the traditional late-night mold to celebrate the beauty and culture of Puerto Rico" and help promote tourism.

    "My family, along with 'Hamilton,' are dedicated to continuing to aid in Puerto Rico's strive for prosperity and we are thankful to be able to call Jimmy and the 'Tonight Show' team friends and partners in this mission," Miranda said.

    He and the new "Hamilton" touring cast will perform the musical's "The Story of Tonight."
