The premiere of the filmed version of Miranda’s Tony-winning Broadway musical “Hamilton” on Disney Plus in July, moved up from a planned 2021 release, not only gave joy and comfort to scores of viewers stuck at home due to COVID-19, it brought the creator an estimated $30 million payday, on top of the $14 million in profit participation he was said to be earning from its various stage productions. But all was not good news for the charismatic multi-hyphenate.

Next year also brings the release of his feature directorial debut, the Netflix adaptation of the Jonathan Larson musical “Tick, Tick… Boom!”
