Lin-Manuel Miranda Takes 'Hamilton' To Puerto Rico With Big Opening Night


After making it big in New York, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit “Hamilton” just arrived in Puerto Rico. On Friday, the show kicked off its three-week residency at San Juan’s Centro De Bellas Artes, but it’s not all just for fun. The musical hopes to raise a minimum of $15 million toward the Flamboyan Arts Fund, an initiative spearheaded by Miranda and his family to support arts on the island. Miranda will star as his lead character, Alexander Hamilton, for a total of 24 performances. On opening night, the performer received shoutouts and congratulatory messages on social media from colleagues and former educators, including his 8th grade teacher and the president of his alma mater, Hunter College.
