According to a report by The New York Times, actor and Tony winning composer and lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Bring It On) will present his new show, The Hamilton Mixtape, at Vassar College's Powerhouse Theater this season, which runs June 21 to July 28, 2013.

The Hamilton Mixtape is a hip-hop song cycle about the life and death of Alexander Hamilton and showcases a fusion of Miranda's signature Latin, hip-hop and classic Broadway styles.

Miranda's musical In The Heights received four 2008 Tony Awards (including Best Orchestrations, Best Choreography and Best Musical), with Miranda receiving a Tony Award for Best Score, as well as a nomination for Best Leading Actor in a Musical. Additionally, In The Heights also took home a 2009 Grammy Award for its Original Broadway Cast Album, and was also recognized as a Finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.

Miranda is the recipient of the 2007 ASCAP Richard Rodgers New Horizons Award. The actor's TV and film credits include The Electric Company, Sesame Street, The Sopranos, House, Modern Family, The Sex and the City Movie and The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

Lin-Manuel is a co-founder and member of Freestyle Love Supreme, a popular hip-hop
improv group that performs regularly in New York City. The group has also toured the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, as well as the Aspen, Melbourne and Montreal Comedy Festivals. Recently, Lin-Manuel contributed new songs to the upcoming revival of Stephen Schwartz' Working and worked with Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim on Spanish translations for the 2009 Broadway Revival of West Side Story.

He has performed for President Obama and the First Family at the White House for its first-ever Poetry Jam and was selected to be a Master Teacher for the 2009 Mercer Songwriter's Project at Northwestern University.
