Lin-Manuel Miranda talks inspiration for ‘Hamilton’ and making his directorial debut

Miranda tears up recalling the pivotal moment in his life when he saw Jonathan Larson’s musical “Rent” on Broadway and how he is paying tribute to Larson in his directorial debut with the film “Tick, Tick… Boom!” starring Andrew Garfield.
