Lin-Manuel Miranda Blasts Texas Church’s Unauthorized Production of ‘Hamilton’

August 15, 2022

A megachurch is being accused of ripping off the award-winning musical 'Hamilton.' The Door Christian Fellowship Ministries in McAllen, Texas allegedly put on a production that "changed lyrics and added text without permission" to reference the Bible and Jesus. Currently, there are seven authorized productions of the musical. Hamilton's creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is now sending a cease and desist letter to the church calling it an "Illegal, unauthorized production."
