Lin-Manuel Miranda slows down in 2022

Miranda has been very busy over the past few years. He’s only an Oscar away from joining the coveted EGOT club, and has surfed on the success of movies, including Encanto, In the heightsand tick, tick… BOOM! since 2021.

But while waiting for the rest, Miranda is in no hurry to get back to work. In fact, he takes his time before embarking on his next project.

“I have a lot of dental work that I didn’t do last year because I had movie after movie after movie. I have a wisdom tooth that needs to come out,” he said. “Seriously, my office is empty for the first time in my career because I tried to get In the heights movie since 2008. It’s on my desk, Encantois on my desk. Tick, tick is out of my office. So, this is a year to fill my cup and read comics and listen to podcasts and see what’s next. But I have an empty office, so I’m going to tuck the kids in and relax this year.
