Kids Commute: Lin-Manuel Miranda week!
This week on Kids Commute, we're fulfilling a request for listeners Mario, Hector and Kathryn, all big fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda!
Lin-Manuel Miranda is a multi-talented actor, singer, writer and rapper.
From "Hamilton" to Disney's "Moana," his work is all over stages and screens!
When he was a college sophomore, Miranda finished the first draft of "In the Heights," a musical about life in New York City's Washington Heights.
The musical made its Broadway premiere just six years later, and was nominated for 13 Tony Awards!
"Hamilton," which premiered in 2015, quickly made Miranda a household name, and since then, he's starred in films like "Mary Poppins Returns," written music for Disney's "Encanto," won a Pulitzer Prize and much more.
This week's Kids Commute episodes were produced with support from Delia Zaleski, Emily Duncan Wilson, Amanda Sewell and Joseph Levesque.
