Hillary Clinton and Lin-Manuel Miranda to Host Biden Broadway Fund-Raiser


Hillary Clinton and Lin-Manuel Miranda are scheduled to host a fund-raiser for President Biden next month at a production of “Suffs: The Musical,” according to an invitation reviewed by The New York Times.

Mrs. Clinton is a producer of the Broadway musical, which is about the early-20th-century women’s suffrage movement. The addition of Mr. Miranda, the creator and star of “Hamilton,” lends Broadway royalty to the fund-raiser.

The event, which will be held on April 3, is part of a significant ramp-up for the Biden campaign’s fund-raising operation. Just days beforehand, on March 28, Mr. Biden is set to appear with former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama at a fund-raiser at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Mr. Biden will also appear at fund-raisers next week in Dallas and Houston, according to invitations viewed by The Times, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan will appear at events for the campaign in Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area in early April.

Jill Biden, the first lady, is scheduled to attend fund-raising events next weekend in Los Angeles and Palm Springs, Calif.

The Biden campaign’s fund-raising operation has outpaced that of former President Donald J. Trump, though figures are not yet available for the period since they both formally wrapped up their parties’ presidential nominations on Tuesday.

Mr. Biden’s campaign said it raised $10 million in the 24 hours following his State of the Union address last week.
