Hamilton was the big winner at the TONY Awards last night. It won 11 awards, including Best Musical. Its creator and star, Lin Manuel Miranda, shared an emotional sonnet when he accepted his award for best original score. He said, in part: “This show is proof that history remembers/We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger/We rise and fall and light from dying embers/Remembrances that hope and love lasts long/And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love/Cannot be killed or swept aside…”
