Lin-Manuel Miranda with Snuffy and Elmo

Lin-Manuel Miranda (b. 1980) is a Tony Award winning composer and lyricist, and a Tony Award nominated actor. He is most famous for writing and starring in the Broadway musicals In the Heights and Hamilton.

He appears in the season 40 premiere of Sesame Street as real estate agent Freddy Flapman. He also voiced a lamb in Episode 4262 (which, in a tweet, he referred to as "Lamb-Manuel"),[1] and sang the theme song to the insert Murray Has a Little Lamb. In season 42, Miranda began composing songs for the show as well.

In October of 2017, Miranda appeared in videos celebrating Puerto Rico on Elmo and Sesamo's Twitter feeds.

Miranda also made several appearances on the 2009 revival of The Electric Company, and provided the translations for the 2009 revival of West Side Story.

Miss Piggy name-dropped Miranda in a 2017 interview with InStyle. Asked about her musical theater crush, Piggy said: "Lin-Manuel Miranda, of course ... but only after he completely assured moi that Hamilton was not some kind of veiled porcine insult. He’s adorable, and strictly entre nous, he's going to be writing a new musical for moi. Right now, I’m not at liberty to tell you more, but as soon as I tell Lin about it, you’ll be the first to know."[2]
