The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center presents multidisciplinary creative artist Lin-Manuel Miranda with the 18th annual Monte Cristo Award.
An alumnus of the O'Neill, Miranda's first professional production (of In the Heights) was at the O'Neill's National Music Theater Conference in 2005.
Now comes a gala dinner featuring a conversation with the honoree.
The event supports the O'Neill's commitment to developing new work and new artists for the stage.
The Monte Cristo Award is bestowed annually on a prominent theater artist whose work has had an extraordinary impact on American theater, in memory of the O'Neill's namesake.
