Lin-Manuel Miranda started working on musicals while attending high school.
Having discovered theater at an extraordinarily young age, Lin-Manuel started working on musicals as a teenager. In 2011, he leaked a short clip of himself as a kid delivering an impassioned take on Kenny Loggins' "Footloose." The adorable video further proves that he took up a deep-seated interest in performing early on. His first musical, In the Heights, premiered in 2000 at the Wesleyan University's '92 Theater.
In the Heights arrived on off-Broadway in February 2007. It made it to Broadway in 2008, winning four Tony Awards — out of 13 nominations. The cast recording won a Grammy Award. He picked up Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography about Alexander Hamilton, titled Alexander Hamilton, while on vacation in 2008. He soon decided to create "The Hamilton Mixtape," which he performed as part of an event held at the White House in May 2009, before penning the famous musical.
Hamilton opened at New York's The Public Theater on Jan. 20, 2015. The movie adaptation arrived on Disney Plus in July 2020.
