Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., and Daveed Diggs Tell Their Stories With Hamilton
The trio of Tony nominees sits down with TheaterMania to discuss their history with Miranda's juggernaut musical.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., and Daveed Diggs became cultural icons with the Broadway opening of Hamilton, Miranda's hip-hop musical about the life of America's first treasury secretary. Now Tony Award nominees, the men are looking back. The day after they got the news of their nominations, they sat down with TheaterMania to talk about their origins with the project — Miranda as a man on vacation reading a really long book, Diggs as a rapper given the material, and Odom Jr. as an audience member who just wanted to watch it.
