“I think live theatre is important because it’s all about community; it’s about collaboration; it’s all about getting you out of your shell in order to raise your voice and speak out loud and perform in front of people,” Lacamoire said on the red carpet. “I think for me, it was definitely a big confidence booster, so I think it does that for a lot of people.”

Lacamoire previously won Tony Awards for two Lin-Manuel Miranda musicals: last year's Hamilton and In the Heights in 2008.
