Creator of Broadway hit 'Hamilton' visits Puerto Rico

Lin-Manuel Miranda jokingly compared himself to a hard-to-catch Pokemon as fans pursued him with cellphones Wednesday during a visit to his parents' native Puerto Rico shortly after the end of his run on the Broadway hit "Hamilton."

Cheers broke out as Miranda promised to bring the show that won 11 Tony Awards to the U.S. territory, adding that he would like to turn it into a movie in the near future.

"I will be your Hamilton!" he said with a wide smile as he arrived in the north coastal town of Vega Alta, where he spent his childhood summers selling ice cream and enlisting neighbors to star in his skits.
