Trivia Edit

  • The song "Satisfied" uses music that Lin-Manuel Miranda originally wrote for Olivo using her own lyrics. When Miranda was writing "Satisfied", he realized the music he wrote two years earlier would be perfect for the song.[1] Coincidentally, Olivo ended up playing Angelica Schuyler, the primary character in "Satisfied".
  • She was part of the Original Broadway Company for In The Heights - another musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda - where she played Vanessa.
