On April 30, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center awarded Lin-Manuel Miranda with the 18th Monte Cristo Award at New York City’s Edison Ballroom. The O’Neill annually bestows the Monte Cristo Award on a prominent theater artist whose work has had an extraordinary impact on American theater. The first professional production on In The Heights was at the O’Neill’s National Music Theater Conference in 2005, and in 2017, the Miranda Family Fund announced their commitment to provide scholarships for artists of color to attend the O’Neill’s National Theater Institute.
