Growing up Ginger’s first experience of grown-upness came in the form of a phone call from her parents, who asked what she wanted for her birthday.
Her response: “I want to be an actor.”
In the years that followed, she was a regular at various Broadway and stage productions, and in 2012, she made her Broadway debut in Hamilton.
She went on to win three Tony Awards in her Broadway career, including the 2016 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, and a 2016 Grammy Award for best songwriting for “The Man I Love.”
In 2017, Ginger was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Jane on Hamilton, and was also nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in an Animated Program.
In 2018, Ginger released her new solo album, Growing Up Ginger.
