Lin-Manuel Miranda is a genius! Before you call me Captain Obvious, I know that he has shook up Broadway not once but twice. First with In The Heights and now with Hamilton but the prestigious MacArthur Foundation has chosen Lin-Manuel as one of 24 illustrious people selected to the 2015 class of fellows of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The fellowships, which are known as “genius grants,” come with a no strings attached stipend of $625,000 over five years. Congratulations yet again to our hometown hero!
