Although Lin-Manuel Miranda is now a house-hold name his mega-musical sticks to its routes as it casts relatively unknown and racially diverse actors to be its leading man! Meet the men who have taken on the ten-dollar founding father.
LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA (Off-Broadway, Broadway, Puerto Rico)

Dallas born Miguel originated the coveted role in the production's first long-running regional production in Chicago! Before Hamilton Cervantes appeared in the Broadway productions of If/Then (2014) and American Idiot (2010) and appeared on TV shows like Madam Secretary and Royal Pains. Cervantes spends his time off-stage raising awareness and funds for epilepsy care and finding a cure, his daughter sadly passed away from the condition in 2019.
