Hamilton makes history again and again and again.

The revolutionary musical broke the record for most Audience Choice Awards.

Hamilton won 11 Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards, including Favorite New Musical and all the big acting categories.

It's the 17th time Broadway.com has handed out these honors, as voted on by the fans.

This evening we talked with the star and creator of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, about how it feels to be honored by theatergoers and how wold his life is right now.

"It's voted on by people who have no reason to go online to vote, there's no incentive in this for you, you don't get to go see the show for free like it's people who took the time out of their day to cast a vote for us because they like our show and that means the world because there's no reason you have to do it, it's just out of pureness and love," Miranda smiled. "I call this the montage section, I mean if my life were a movie this would be the part where newspapers are spinning, and they would cover it with light bulbs and me walking into buildings, so I'm just trying to live it in real time and not live it as a montage."

Of course, Hamilton is up for a record 16 Tony nominations. Those awards will be handed out June 12th.
