Lin-Manuel Miranda to Receive Monte Cristo Award

Lin-Manuel Miranda to Receive Monte Cristo Award

The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center has announced that multi-discipline creative artist Lin-Manuel Miranda will receive the 18th Monte Cristo Award.  An alumnus of the O’Neill, Miranda’s first professional production was at the O’Neill’s National Music Theater Conference with In The Heights in 2005. A gala dinner featuring a conversation with the honoree will be held at the Edison Ballroom (New York) on Monday, April 30, 2018.

The O’Neill annually bestows its Monte Cristo Award on a prominent theater artist whose work has had an extraordinary impact on American theater, in memory of its namesake. The gala event supports the Center’s commitment to developing new work and new artists for the stage.

O’Neill Executive Director Preston Whiteway remarks, “Lin-Manuel’s pioneering spirit continues to transform the American theater landscape since he first launched and developed his In The Heights at the O’Neill in 2005, and through every endeavor he undertakes.  Not since Eugene O’Neill has there been someone who so firmly plants American theater in the cultural landscape of this nation, and worldwide. We are delighted to recognize him with our 2017 Monte Cristo Award.”

“The O’Neill is a place I will always hold near to my heart” shares Lin-Manuel Miranda. “It’s a great honor to receive this award and to continue to work with the O’Neill to raise money for scholarships so that more and more artists can benefit from the teachers and mentors and the space they create.”

This past May, The Miranda Family Fund announced their commitment to provide scholarships for artists of color to attend the O’Neill’s National Theater Institute. NTI’s credit-earning theater intensives—taught by industry professionals and master teachers—train actors, singers, directors, dancers, designers, playwrights, and composers to produce, write, direct, and act in their own work, as well as create their own path in the industry.  NTI is a pipeline to the profession – and with this partnership, The Miranda Family Fund and NTI will further the inclusion of artists of color across all disciplines of theater.

Tickets for the  Monte Cristo Award are available at www.theoneill.org/montecristoaward.  Tickets start at $350. Multiple levels available. For sponsorship opportunities or additional information about the event, call 860-443-5378 ext. 288, or email events@theoneill.org.
