Hollywood, Calif. – The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that entertainer Lin-Manuel Miranda will be honored with the 2,652nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, November 30th at 11:30 a.m. PST. The star will be dedicated in the category of Live Theatre at 6243 Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Pantages Theatre.
“Lin-Manuel Miranda has made history with history! He has brilliantly made the show Hamilton a musical learning experience for young and old. He constantly displays the charisma with and talent we all want to see on the stage forever,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of Hollywood Walk of Fame. “We are proud that Lin-Manuel Miranda star will add to our Hollywood history!”
Emcee Leron Gubler, President & CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce along with “Weird Al” Yankovic and Renee Elise Goldsberry (Tony Award winner, original Angelica from Hamilton will unveil the star.
Lin-Manuel co-stars with Emily Blunt in “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical and sequel. The film will be released on December 19th, by Walt Disney Studios.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce which administers the popular star ceremonies encourages people who are unable to attend and fans around the world to watch the event exclusively on www.walkoffame.com.
Lin-Manuel Miranda was born and raised in Inwood/Washington Heights in New York.
He is an award-winning composer, lyricist, and performer, as well as a 2015 MacArthur Foundation Award recipient. His current musical, Hamilton – with book, music and lyrics by Miranda, in addition to him originating the title role – opened on Broadway in 2015. Hamilton was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Drama and earned a record-breaking 16 Tony Nominations, winning 11 Tony Awards including two personally for Miranda for Book and Score of a Musical. The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Hamilton won the 2016 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. Both Miranda and Hamilton won the 2016 Drama League Awards for Distinguished Performance and Outstanding Production of a Musical, respectively.
For its sold-out Off-Broadway run at The Public Theater, Hamilton received a record-breaking ten Lortel Awards, as well as three Outer Critic Circle Awards, eight Drama Desk Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best New Musical, and an OBIE for Best New American Play. Material from the show was previewed at the White House during its first-ever Evening of Poetry & Spoken Word in 2009, Lincoln Center Theater’s 2012 American Songbook Series, and New York Stage and Film’s 2013 Powerhouse Theatre Season at Vassar College. The Chicago production of Hamiltonopened in October 2016, with a 1st National Tour and London production both opening in 2017. The London Production went on to win seven Oliver Awards in 2018, including Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Music for Miranda and orchestrator Alex Lacamoire. The Hamilton Mixtape, a concept album inspired by the show’s score featuring top rappers and musicians in the music industry, was released in December 2016. Lin-Manuel received a 2017 MTV VMA Award in the “Best Fight Against the System” category for the video, “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)” off of The Hamilton Mixtape. In January 2019, Lin-Manuel will return to the role of Alexander Hamilton when the Hamilton tour visits Puerto Rico for an unprecedented three-week engagement. Proceeds from these performances benefit the Flamboyan Arts Fund, an initiative dedicated to preserving, amplifying, and sustaining the arts in Puerto Rico.
Miranda’s first Broadway musical, In the Heights, received four 2008 Tony Awards (including Best Orchestrations, Best Choreography and Best Musical), with Miranda receiving a Tony Award for Best Score, as well as a nomination for Best Leading Actor in a Musical. In the Heights also took home a 2009 Grammy Award for its Original Broadway Cast Album and was recognized as a Finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. In 2016, Miranda won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music for the Original London production of In The Heights. Off-Broadway, In the Heights received a Drama Desk award for Outstanding Ensemble Performance, the Lucille Lortel Award and Outer Critic’s Circle Award for Best Musical and Miranda received an Obie Award for Outstanding Music and Lyrics.
Miranda is the co-composer (with Tom Kitt), and co-lyricist (with Amanda Green) of Broadway’s Bring it On: The Musical (2013 Tony Nom., Best Musical, 2013 Drama Desk Nom., Best Lyrics). He contributed new songs to the revival of Stephen Schwartz’ Working and Spanish translations for the 2009 Broadway Revival of West Side Story. In 2014, Miranda received an Emmy Award with Kitt for their song, “Bigger” from the 67th Annual Tony Awards. Miranda contributed music, lyrics and vocals to several songs in Disney’s feature film Moana, earning him an Oscar nomination and Grammy Award for the original song, “How Far I’ll Go.”
