In the Heights marked the Tony-, Grammy-, and Pulitzer-winning Miranda's Broadway debut as both a writer and performer. Miranda led the cast as Usnavi alongside a company that included fellow Hamilton alums Mandy Gonzalez, Christopher Jackson, Karen Olivo, and Seth Stewart, as well as Priscilla Lopez, Robin de Jesús, Janet Dacal, Andréa Burns, and Olga Merediz. The show won four 2008 Tony Awards including Best Musical.
