Broadway stars get their shot to get the shot
April 14th, 2021 under Broadway, Coronavirus, Lin-Manuel Miranda. [ Comments: none ]

The lights on Broadway have been dark for over a year now, and the whole community wants to get back to work. The fastest way they can do that is if they all get vaccinated. Therefore, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Lin-Manuel Miranda opened up a location just for them to get the COVID-19 vaccine in the Theater District.

When Stephen Colbert heard this, he and the Late Show writers reworked Hamilton’s song My Shot for the occasion. I am normally not a fan of Colbert’s work, but this is f*cking brilliant. It is enough to make King George III go mad. And not in the angry sense.

BTW My Shot was on my vaccination playlist when I got the first injection. Now, I am going to add this song to it for when I get the second shot in 11 days. It is not like I am counting or anything.

The Hamilton cast is not Helpless when it comes to promoting their movie
June 29th, 2020 under Jimmy Fallon, Lin-Manuel Miranda. [ Comments: none ]


On July 4th, Hamilton is coming to Disney+, and the Lin-Manuel Miranda came up with an interesting to promote the streaming debut with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. The Tony winner got Phillipa Soo and the women from the original cast to sing Helpless from their homes with some help from The Roots, who used instruments from their houses.

Even though the coronavirus pandemic makes us feel like we are helpless, this upbeat Broadway musical number reminds us that we are not. Although people will think that we are because all we will be doing is singing the chorus in public.

Hamilton comes to Disney+ on July 3rd
May 12th, 2020 under Disney+, Lin-Manuel Miranda. [ Comments: none ]


We might not get fireworks this Fourth of July, but we will have them inside our homes. That is because Bob Iger, Executive Chairman, The Walt Disney Company, and Lin-Manuel Miranda announced on Good Morning America this morning that Hamilton will be coming to Disney+ on July 3rd.

This recording of the Broadway show’s performance was recorded for three days back in June 2016 before some of the original cast members left the musical to pursue other opportunities. It is directed by the man who directed the original production.

Miranda described it as, “just imagine having the best seat in the house.” Now, we have the best seat in that house, in our houses anytime we want! See fireworks!

This movie was originally slated to hit the big screens in October 2021, I am so thankful Disney moved it because it is exactly what we all need now.

Lin-Manuel Miranda was a nude model
March 18th, 2020 under Lin-Manuel Miranda. [ Comments: none ]


Billy Eichner asked Lin-Manuel Miranda to tell him five jobs he had before he was a Tony-Award winning producer. They were:

1) McDonalds cashier
2) Intern at PBS/WNET (unpaid but $10 a day transportation stipend!)
3) nude model for Drawing 1 in college
4) bar mitzvah dancer
5) 7th grade English teacher

I can understand all the jobs, but not the third one. When it comes to that one, I want to see painting proof, otherwise, it did not happen. Am I the only one who wants proof?

Hamilton gets its shot on the big screen
February 3rd, 2020 under Lin-Manuel Miranda. [ Comments: 1 ]


I think I might be the only person who has never seen Hamilton, but that will change on October 15, 2021. That is because Disney announced today that they are bringing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton to the big screen.

Instead of turning it into a huge movie production, that people will whine about, we will be seeing the original Broadway cast performing the Tony-winning show at The Richard Rodgers Theatre with the art of “live capture.” What does that mean? The press release says they will be “combining the best elements of live theater and film.”

If this works, then I would expect more shows to go from the Great White Way to Hollywood, so that people all over the world can experience it in its original form. Most likely, it will not be as good as the real thing. However, it will be a sh!tload cheaper. That is something my wallet really loves because who can afford Broadway these days? Then again, who can afford going to the movies these days? Thankfully, Disney+ is affordable and I will be able to watch to Hamilton on it in 2022. That is only two years away.
