Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Lin-Manuel Miranda is the recipient of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s 18th annual Monte Cristo Award, given each year to a theatre artist whose work has had an extraordinary impact on American theatre.

The Hamilton and In the Heights creator was presented with the award at a gala dinner at New York’s Edison Ballroom April 30.

The O’Neill Theater Center was home to Miranda’s first professional production: a presentation of In the Heights at the National Music Theater Conference in 2005. The musical, which Miranda co-wrote with Quiara Alegría Hudes, went on to play Off-Broadway’s 37 Arts Theater before transferring to Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre (now home to Hamilton). Miranda, who also starred, won his first Tony Award for his score.
