Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ethel Merman Have More Than Just a Birthday in Common

They're also both featured in these awesome photos we made.

By New York City

Today, January 16, is the birthday of musical-theater favorites Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights), who is 34, and Ethel Merman (Gypsy), who would be 106. To honor two of our favorite Broadway stars, we're sharing some photos we created last year of the two of them celebrating together (as they clearly would be if The Merm was with us today).

We mashed up the photos, now tell us how you'd mash-up the music of the creator of In the Heights and the woman who originated showtunes like "It's De-Lovely" and "There's No Business Like Show Business."

Oh, and they're also both Tony Award winners, New York natives, and only minimally enthusiastic about birthday cake.
