Lin-Manuel Miranda

Here is the link to the New York Times review of HAMILTON.

I can hardly wait to write my own review of the Chicago Production!!

Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

From Wikipedia:
Hamilton earned the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and was nominated for a record-setting 16 Tony Awards, of which it won 11, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book. For his performance in the lead role of Alexander Hamilton, Miranda was nominated for another Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. The Hamilton cast recording spent ten weeks atop Billboard's Top Rap Albums chart in 2015, while The Hamilton Mixtape, an album of covers of songs from the musical, developed by and featuring Miranda, reached number one on the Billboard 200 upon release in December 2016.

Oh, yeah...2017 Grandma Camp is gonna be all about the Revolutionary War.  THANK YOU LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA.

  1. Think you can send this to Lilly's Music teacher to get her up to speed, since she hasn't heard of Hamilton. Perhaps seeing all the awards and accolades it has received she might check it out....
