As if the world couldn’t possibly love Lin-Manuel Miranda any more, he’s dipped into his own pocket to buy a New York City book shop and thus save it from closure.

The actor and lyricist, who shot to stardom after composing the musical ‘Hamilton’, has teamed up with two of his colleagues from the production to purchase the Drama Book Shop, a script, sheet music and theatrical bookseller located in midtown Manhattan and which dates back more than 100 years.

It’s part of an effort in tandem with the city itself, spearheaded by Miranda and his colleagues, to save one of New York’s cultural institutions and hunt for a new location in the vicinity.

Lin-Manuel Miranda To Make Directorial Debut With 'Tick, Tick... Boom!'


Lin-Manuel Miranda

Having scored an enormous critical and commercial success with ‘Hamilton’ in the last couple of years, playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda is moving into the world of cinema and is set to make his directorial debut with Tick, Tick… Boom!

Miranda has been tapped by Imagine Entertainment to helm the movie adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s loosely autobiographical play (Larson was the playwright of the incredibly successful ‘Rent’). The 38 year old is perfectly placed to helm it, as he starred in a 2014 stage production of 'Tick, Tick… Boom!'.

He will also be producing the film, alongside Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Imagine's Julie Oh, with Tony Award-winning playwright and TV writer Steven Levenson set to write the script for the screen adaptation, according to Deadline.

Ticket Chaos As 'Hamilton' West End Run's Opening Delayed


Lin-Manuel Miranda

The grand West End opening of the acclaimed musical ‘Hamilton’ has been thrown into chaos after being pushed back by two weeks, leaving thousands of disappointed fans without tickets.

Cameron Mackintosh, the owner of the Victoria Palace Theatre and the co-producer of ‘Hamilton’, confirmed the news on Friday (September 8th) that the massive redevelopment of the venue will not be completed in time for the scheduled November 21st opening of the play. “Tight time constraints” and “unhelpful problems” had prompted their “pragmatic decision” to postpone the opening, he explained.

Previews of ‘Hamilton’ will now begin a fortnight later on December 6th, but as all of the tickets for the run’s first booking period up to June 2018 have sold out, those who had booked tickets for the first two weeks are now left struggling to find seats again.

Lin-Manuel Miranda

One of 2016's biggest rising stars, Lin-Manuel Miranda is proving that his departure from his record-breaking 16-time Tony Award winning show 'Hamilton' is by no means the end for him. He's now working on some of the biggest movies Hollywood has to offer over the next couple of years.

Since departing 'Hamilton', he has been working on the soundtrack for the recently released animated Disney blockbuster 'Moana' starring Dwayne Johnson. He even got to lend his own vocals to one of the songs, 'You're Welcome', which was sung by Johnson in the film but featured as a duet with Miranda and Jordan Fisher in the end credits. But his work with Disney doesn't end there. He'll write the score  for the upcoming live action remake of 'The Little Mermaid' with Alan Menken, though little more information about the film has been released thus far.
