HAMILTON and IN THE HEIGHTS creator Lin-Manuel Miranda discusses his Puerto Rican roots, how they turned him into the writer he is today, and feeling right at home in Chicago, IL.

On September 23, Miranda joined Chicago Humanities Festival and the Chicago Tribune for a conversation about his life, his influences, and even a little bit of freestyling at the Lyric Opera of Chicago with Tribune theater critic Chris Jones. To watch the full program, click here.
