On Sunday, millions will tune in to the Tony Awards to see if Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” will make history for the most awards ever received by one production at the Broadway honors. The hit musical, documenting the rivalry between founding fathers Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, has become an instant sell-out (tickets to Miranda’s last performance on July 9 are going for as much as $10,000) and garnered a record 16 Tony nominations.

The plot of “Hamilton” also touches on a host of monetary and career issues that hold just as true today as they did in the Revolutionary War era.

From “Waitress” to “School of Rock,” here are some career lessons we can learn from this year’s Tony-nominated plays.
