A hip-hop musical about the United States’ first Treasury Secretary could make history at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, June 12.

Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Hamilton has 16 nominations in 13 categories, included Best Musical, Best Actor, Best Actress, Direction for a musical and choreography. If the musical wins in all 13 categories, it would break the record for the production with the most Tonys.

Miranda and other members of the Broadway cast are scheduled to perform at some point during the ceremony. The show has become a national sensation since its Broadway debut in August 2015.

Other shows nominated for a Tony award include Bright Star, The Humans and The Color Purple.
