"Her world-class voice sounding warm and full, Gonzalez and the band excite the crowd"
—New Jersey Stage
The stars of Hamilton and In the Heights pay tribute to their friend Lin-Manuel Miranda and perform favorites from Stephen Schwartz and other songwriters of today’s Broadway. Mandy Gonzalez is a Santa Clarita Valley native who was discovered by Miranda when he cast her in his breakout hit musical, In the Heights. She later went on to star in Wicked. Javier Muñoz guest stars in this unforgettable evening at The Soraya. Muñoz stepped into Miranda’s shoes when he took over the lead role of Alexander Hamilton in the blockbuster Hamilton.
Be in the room where it happens for the infectious Hamilton hits, and defy gravity with the memorable tunes of Wicked. Every season, The Soraya is home to some of Broadway’s brightest stars. This duo shines brightly among them.
