NEW YORK, NY -- Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the Broadway hit "Hamilton," has been honored with his own famous caricature at the world-renowned Broadway watering hole, Sardi's on Tuesday. Miranda is now one of 227 portraits hanging on the walls of the famous restaurant, which includes caricatures of Chita Rivera, Rosie Perez and John Leguizamo.
Members of the Miranda family and "Hamilton" cast members Phillipa Soo and Leslie Odom Jr. attended the ceremony. Miranda's mother, Luz Towns-Miranda, told the Associated Press the walls in Sardi's were Broadway's version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"This is Broadway's equivalent," Towns-Miranda said. "Basically, he's being honored by Broadway."
"Hamilton" is currently up for a record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations, including Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.
Miranda has received a Grammy Award, Pulitzer Prize, and a MacArthur Foundation "genius" grant.
Miranda told the Associated Press that the Sardi's caricature is different from his previous honors because, "you can enjoy this with the best baked Alaska in town..."
