It seems Tony-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (of ‘In the Heights‘ fame) is a Fordham fan. At the photo on the left, the Wesleyan alumnus wears a Fordham sweatshirt in a group photo. At right, he poses with two Fordham alumnae in their Fordham t-shirts. (The one on the right is Roz Baron, an alumna of Fordham College at Lincoln Center.)

Baron, a blogger, tells me the photo on the right was taken this past weekend (Feb. 23) at a special screening of West Side Story at the United Palace Theatre in Northern Manhattan (Washington Heights, of course!), where Miranda introduced the film and interviewed Oscar, Tony, Grammy, and Emmy-winning superstar, Rita Moreno. (She played the fiery Anita. Watch the great scene in which she performs “America” below.)
