“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda’s prize case is getting some-more crowded.
The Tony- and Pulitzer-winner will accept the 18th annual Monte Cristo Award from the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.
Miranda, 37, began work in 2005 on his first Tony-winning low-pitched “In the Heights” at the core in Waterford, Conn.
“The O’Neill is a place we will always hold nearby to my heart,” Miranda pronounced in a statement. “It’s a good respect to accept this endowment and to continue to work with the O’Neill to lift income for scholarships so that some-more and some-more artists can advantage from the teachers and mentors and the space they create.”
Last spring, the Miranda Family announced its joining to back scholarships for artists of tone to attend the O’Neill’s National Theater Institute, the center’s for-credit training program.
The Cristo endowment is given to an artist whose work has had an unusual impact on American theater. Past recipients embody Judith Light, Meryl Streep, Nathan Lane, Christopher Plummer and James Earl Jones.
The endowment proclamation on Thursday coincided with the birthday of Alexander Hamilton.
Miranda will be respected in a celebration cooking on Apr 30 at the Edison Ballroom in Manhattan.
