The Story Behind Lin-Manuel Miranda's Directorial Debut in 'tick, tick...Boom!'

By

As Hamilton continues to be one of the most coveted tickets on Broadway and beyond, Lin Manuel Miranda has managed to inspire a new generation of theater buffs. But once, Lin was that kid himself, and another playwright set him on his path today. 

As the Tony, Emmy, and Grammy-winner gears up to add "director" to his list of credits, he's taking on a story written by one of the people who inspired him all those years ago, Jonathan Larson. Though it was an off-Broadway show that never saw the same success as Jonathan's other work, Rent, the tick, tick...Boom! movie adaptation will pay tribute to the story Jonathan wrote before his unexpected passing at the age of 35.
