And then, one night, he saw a TV report on “Rent.” He had never been to Broadway. But he was stunned — he found it sexy, and rebellious, and joyful, and he wanted in. “That was the bat signal for me — ‘Rent’ changed my life,” he said. “It took me years before I got beyond that show.”
40 years (August 6, 1981)
Odom was nominated for a 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical for the role of Aaron Burr in the off-Broadway production of Hamilton at The Public Theater.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, (born January 16, 1980, New York, New York, U.S.), American actor, composer, lyricist, and writer who created and starred in stage productions that blended modern musical forms with classic musical theatre. Perhaps his best-known work was Hamilton, a hip-hop musical about Alexander Hamilton.
According to StyleCaster, Odom’s net worth is an estimated $10 million.

He grew up in the Caribbean with a Dickensian childhood and then wrote his way to the mainland, wrote his way into the American Revolutionary War, wrote his way into the first cabinet, wrote his way into trouble, wrote his way into his duel. So this is an immigrant narrative.
Since the show arrived on Disney+, though, there have been some criticisms levelled against its historical accuracy. Some have also questioned the liberties taken by writer and lead star Lin-Manuel Miranda, arguing that the show brushes over the subject of Hamilton’s dealings with slavery.
Diggs left Hamilton in July 2016. He went on to release new music with his rap group Clipping and co-star in the ABC sitcom black-ish.Jul 31, 2020
