Lin-Manuel Miranda

in Conversation with

Jeremy McCarter & Tommy Kail

The artistic journey of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical In the Heights has spanned decades. From his undergraduate days at Wesleyan University, to the show’s Broadway debut and Tony win for Best Musical in 2008, to its big screen release in 2021, there are truly hundreds of stories to tell. Luckily, they have now all been recorded by Mr. Miranda and his collaborators, Quiara Alegría Hudes and Jeremy McCarter in the stunning new book In The Heights: Finding Home.

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center is honored to welcome Lin-Manuel Miranda to talk about the creative life of In the Heights, the evolution of his play and chasing the universal question: Where do I belong?

Mr. Miranda will be joined in conversation by co-author Jeremy McCarter and Tommy Kail, director of Broadway’s In The Heights.

Mr. Miranda is a Pulitzer Prize, Grammy, Emmy and Tony award-winning songwriter, actor and director. He is the creator and original star of Broadway’s Tony-winning Hamilton and In the Heights. His additional Broadway credits include Freestyle Love Supreme (Co-Founder, Guest Star, Special Tony Award Recipient), Bring It On: The Musical (co-composer/co-lyricist, Tony nomination for Best Musical), and West Side Story (2009 revival, Spanish translations). Mr. Miranda is the recipient of the 2015 MacArthur Foundation Award, the 2018 Kennedy Center Honors and the 2019 Portrait of a Nation Prize. He received an Emmy Award with Tom Kitt for their song, “Bigger” from the 67th Annual Tony Awards. Mr. Miranda, and The Miranda Family, are active supporters of initiatives that increase people of color’s representation throughout the arts and government, ensure access to women’s reproductive health, and promote resilience in Puerto Rico. TV/Film Credits include: Vivo, In the Heights, Hamilton, His Dark Materials, Fosse/Verdon, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Saturday Night LiveWe the People, Sesame Street, Moana, Mary Poppins Returns, Encanto and his film directorial debut, tick, tick… BOOM!.
