Off-Broadway mainstay Ars Nova celebrated Hamilton collaborators Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Jill Furman during its annual gala, held September 21 at the Edison Ballroom. The evening, titled The Ars Nova Revolution, looks back on the trio's journey from Freestyle Love Supreme (Ars Nova, 2004) to Hamilton (Broadway, 2015), in a night of revelry benefiting Ars Nova's artist community.

On hand were Hamilton cast members including Daveed Diggs, Jonathan Groff, Christopher Jackson, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Leslie Odom Jr., Anthony Ramos, and Phillipa Soo, alongside stage favorites like Steven Pasquale, Rosie O'Donnell, Molly Ringwald, and Bridget Everett.

With producer Furman, Ars Nova staged Miranda and Kail's first professional New York production, Freestyle Love Supreme, in 2004. Furman also served as producer of In the Heights on Broadway, as well as the currently running Hamilton.
