Lin-Manuel Miranda Has Shingles, Quarantined From Baby Son
Lin-Manuel Miranda thought he had a migraine. It turns out the Broadway star really had shingles.
Miranda tweeted on Thursday (Apr. 5) the diagnosis was caught early, but he’s been quarantined from his 8-week-old son. He says his ophthalmologist has blurred his eyes and he’s wearing a mask. He posted a Phantom of the Opera gif.
Miranda’s son, Francisco, was born in February. He also has a 3-year-old son, Sebastian. The 38-year-old wrote the book, music and lyrics and starred in the Broadway smash Hamilton.
Shingles is a viral disease that causes a painful rash that is usually resolved within days or weeks.
