He should just change his name to Mr. Broadway.
Lin–Manuel Miranda won the award for Best Original Score for Hamilton during the 2016 Tony Awards on Sunday (June 11, 2016) in New York City. His smash broadway hit dominated the night by taking home 11 awards, just short of breaking the 12-Tony record set in 2001 by The Producers. It’s very safe to say that Miranda, 36, is the hottest name in Broadway right now.
However, that’s not all he’s good at. He’s a writer, singer, actor, performer, and English teacher. He’s also one of the only people to have four of the five awards required to make a PEGOT (Pulitzer, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Even President Obama loves him.
In honor of his huge win and the success of his broadway show, here are 10 things you don’t know about Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
