Lin-Manuel Miranda was joined by wife Vanessa Nadal as they attended the 76th Annual Tony Awards at United Palace Theater in New York City on Sunday.
The songwriter and playwright, 43, wore a classy black suit for the occasion, and accessorized the outfit with a boombox.
Meanwhile his wife of 13 years looked stunning and flashed her taut midriff in a black top and a matching frilly skirt with a saucy front slit.
She accessorized with a red rhinestone purse in the shape of an apple and added height to her look with black platform heels.
Miranda served as one of the presenters at the event. He was originally planning on writing a musical number for the show, but pulled out due to the WGA writers’ strike.

Vanessa wore her brunette tresses slicked back into a chic bun for the night. As for glam, she opted for red lipstick, a touch of blush and black mascara.
The pair were also seen posing with rapper Common, 51, who looked sharp in a black suit
The couple – who are high school sweethearts – have been married since 2010.
They share two sons, Sebastian, seven, and Francisco, four.
The theater world will be gathering together again this Sunday evening for the Tony Awards, an annual celebration of all things Broadway.
This year’s ceremony has also become the latest production to have been impacted by the ongoing Writers Guild of America Strike. It marks the first time in 35 years that the Tonys had been afflicted by the WGA strike.
Despite the challenges, the show will still go on.
The ceremony will be airing on CBS in an unscripted format, and the union has agreed not to picket the event.
Classy: The songwriter and playwright, 43, wore a classy black suit for the occasion, and accessorized the outfit with a boombox
Saucy: Meanwhile his wife of 13 years looked stunning and flashed her taut midriff in a black top and a matching frilly skirt with a saucy front slit
Accessories: The pair showed off their unique red carpet accessories
Seasoned actress Ariana DeBose will be hosting this year’s event from the United Palace Theatre in Washington Heights.
Viewers will still be entertained with plenty of performances from a variety of Tony-nominated musicals on stage.
Audience members will be treated to performances from casts of Into the Woods, New York, New York, Shucked, Beautiful Noise, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and more.
It will also feature performances from the cast of the Lea Michele-led musical, Funny Girl.
As far as nominations, Some Like It Hot, the musical adaptation of the Marilyn Monroe film, is up for the most Tonys with a whooping 13 nominations.
It will be battling it out for Best Musical against & Juliet, Kimberly Akimbo, New York, New York, and Shucked.
Nominations for Best Play consist of Ain’t No Mo’, Between Riverside and Crazy, Cost of Living, Fat Ham, Leopoldstadt.
In a statement, Jack Sussman, executive vice president of specials, music, live events and alternative programming at CBS, said of the show: ‘CBS has been home to the Tony Awards for more than 40 years.
Looking sharp: The pair were also seen posing with rapper Common, 51, who looked sharp in a black suit
‘We are proud to once again celebrate the best of theater this season, and continue our support for Broadway, the broader theater community and all the incredible artistic talents both on stage and behind the scenes who bring the shows to life.’
‘This year’s Tony Award nominees are a reflection of a tremendous year of Broadway,’ Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League and Heather Hitchens, president and CEO of the American Theatre Wing, said in a statement.
‘The show will feature performances by Broadway’s brightest lights – from breakthrough performers to industry icons – in recognition of the momentous productions wowing audiences worldwide.’
The Tony Awards marks the latest product impacted by the ongoing walkout.
Drew Barrymore dropped out of hosting the MTV Movie & Television Awards last month in solidarity with the writers, and the event moved forward in stripped down, pre-recorded fashion.
Film and television writers are on strike over complaints that studios have underpaid them for years, particularly when it comes to streaming programs that offer almost no residuals over time. They are also fighting back against studios’ attempts to shrink writers’s rooms, to shorten the number of episodes of television seasons and to leave open the possibility of replacing human writers with so-called ‘AI’ programs.
