Lin-Manuel Miranda Tony Award Speech: "Love Is Love Is Love Is Love Is Love"
In his Tony Award acceptance speech tonight for "Best Score of a Musical," Lin-Manuel Miranda read a sonnet he wrote acknowledging life, love, and today's tragedy.
“Senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised, not one day,” he said. “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 last longer.”
