Lin-Manuel Miranda Basically Gave 'The Wrong Man' Actor Joshua Henry the Best Review Ever

The new off-Broadway musical The Wrong Man just had its opening night performance and Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda was among the attendees.

The 39-year-old Hamilton creator and star wrote a review for the show’s leading man Joshua Henry and basically gave him the best review ever.

“I know Broadway vets who brag about seeing Julie Andrews in My Fair Lady in New Haven or Ethel Merman in Gypsy. I’m going to be exactly that dude about seeing @joshuahenry20 in Scottsboro, American Idiot, Carousel, and now The Wrong Man last night. Legend alive in our time,” Lin wrote on Twitter.

Joshua is pictured in the gallery at the opening night performance with co-stars Ciara Renee and Ryan Vasquez, as well as the show’s director Thomas Kail, writer Ross Golan, and choreographer Travis Wall.

Joshua and Ryan both starred in Lin‘s show Hamilton!

Ansel Elgort and his longtime girlfriend Violetta Komyshan pose for a photo while attending the opening night of the Broadway show Slave Play on Sunday night (October 6) in New York City.

The couple were among the many stars who stepped out to check out the show, which is creating a ton of buzz for Broadway right now.

Ansel and Violetta are clearly still very much in love. Their relationship was put in the spotlight last week after he made comments about wanting to feel free to fall in love with other people.

The comments then led to the online bullying of Ansel‘s West Side Story co-star Rachel Zegler, who announced a break from Twitter following the tweets she was receiving from his fans.

Mary-Louise Parker poses for a photo with co-star Will Hochman at a photo call for their Broadway play The Sound Inside on Friday (September 20) in New York City.

They were joined at the press event by playwright Adam Rapp and director David Cromer.

Mary-Louise appeared on The Today Show that morning and talked about what attracted her to the play.

“I just loved the writer Adam Rapp. He’s so gifted and his prose is so beautiful. I just found the writing so compelling. I’m not always the best judge of what people are going to like, but I just thought it was really interesting,” she said.

Mary-Louise also said she didn’t think she was the best actress for the role and initially recommended friends like Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon to the producers.

The play is now in previews at Broadway’s Studio 54.
