Somebody who's her life is sort of falling apart and she gets in a van and hits the road and lives in RV camps and recreational areas taking on you know little seasonal jobs along the way.

It will be up against the trial of the Chicago Seven, which, if Nomad land doesn't win trial of the Chicago Seven is going to win. This is the Aaron Sorkin. The written and directed production about the famous Chicago seven trial that took place in Chicago 50 years ago.

Your nominees were best Drama for performances in the dramatic category. For actresses. The nominees are Violet Davis on Drew a day, Vanessa Kirby, Frances McDormand and Carrie Mulligan. For best actors in the drama. The nominees are Riz Um, Ed Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Hopkins.

And, uh, Anya Taylor, Joy dominated for the movie called Emma for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy. Sasha Baron Cohen is nominated James Corden from the prom Lin Manuel Miranda from Hamilton Dev Patel for the personal history of David Copperfield and Andy Sandberg. For Palm Springs again.

Amanda Gorman's books jump to bestsellers after inaugural poem
"The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered in witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and the time were a skinny black girl. Descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one that was amanda gorman the inaugural youth poet lawyer it reading from her poem. At the hill we climb which she read at joe biden's inauguration alexandra alter profiled gorman and interviewed her joining us now to talk a little bit more about that hey alexandra hey pamela so this was a really exciting week in washington but i most loved about the news events. This week was that a poet was the breakout star of the inauguration ceremony on wednesday. Amanda gorman was the youngest inaugural poet and us history. She joins a very elite class of poets. Only been a handful of poets who have performed it including robert frost my ngelo elizabeth richard blanco. So she really brought a lot to this performance. And when i spoke to her what was really interesting to me was. She felt enormous pressure. Not just because of the size of the audience she was going to be addressing. Tens of millions of people potentially watching the events at home but because of the state of the country she felt real responsibility to present a poem that reflected joe biden's inaugural theme of america united and. She said they didn't give her any specific guidelines but they said that's the three million inauguration but she also really wanted to address. What has happened recently in the country. Particularly the partisan divisions that we've seen the political violence the effects of the pandemic. It's a really dark moment. And so she was kind of trying to counter johnston to forces the potential for unity. But also these deep divisions that we're seeing in the country now so interestingly. She was really struggling with the poem. The inaugural committee reached out to her late december. She had a few weeks to work on it and was kind of she said it's like it felt like climbing a mountain would do a few versus a day and then on january six. We all watched across the country as the unfolded at the capital. There was the insurrection. There and rioters stormed the capital. And amanda gorman at that point had written about half of her poem and she stayed up late into the night and finished it because she just felt this urgency. And so you're there are verses in the poem that reflect what we saw that day the other thing that she said that was interesting about how she prepared to write it was. She said she always starts with historical research so she studied speeches from leaders who really brought their countries together. In times of crisis she looked at speeches by winston. Churchill abraham lincoln martin luther king junior and she listened to music that inspired her including the musical hamilton. There are a couple of hamilton references within the poem. That some people caught including lin-manuel miranda who was very appreciative of her poetry. So it's been incredible to see their response to her work after she gave this really kind of inspiring performance her books. She has two books coming out this year. Actually three because they're releasing the poem she wrote as a standalone and she has now the number one and number two books on amazon and this is a poet who is twenty two years old and she's preparing to publish her debut collection. This fall so she's gone incredibly quickly from somebody who had following and was pretty well known in the poetry world to kind of national literary star and one other thing that i loved about her performance and her approach to it which she talked about how she felt like she was representing not just her own words but representing poetry itself representing american poetry and y you know it was important to have poetry part of the ceremony. She said when. I spoke to her now more than ever. The united states needs an inaugural poem. Poetry is typically the touchstone that we go back to when we have to remind ourselves of the history that we stand on the future that we stand for so i thought it was lovely that she felt that she was standing up in front of the capital. Two weeks after the insurrection took place kind of representing poetry as a form that can unite the country.

The reason also contrary is because your formative star wars movies, empire strikes back and it is the one with the sad ending and it taught a generation like. atten seeing empire strikes back and being like and that's the end of the movie. What To do. was. I've never seen. Moore most contrary. Bus Seventy eight people more return to Jeddah but no frontiers of that regardless so. All right because I feel like I'm that birth eminem that's what I told you what? All right number to. The far side that's that's Eminem all day. Everything's. and. You're fourteen years old and you hear passenger by. Sh and the REMIX. Letter. Panik. Right. I mean just like. I got to it's just that album was, is like some this much real estate in my brain? I. Don't like records that I learned early. Hype. We almost we almost made a mistake on the adult. Complaints songs. The. Industry complaints on my an ours like no, like no one cares. Doesn't care about. Fame album right. About like the record label and I learned early like never knees is about. The record label so I learned early. You know. Our number two, what you number two number two is an album that I remember more as like a vinyl. My Dad's collection is a ruben blades album called scandal America looking for America and it was it's it's one of those moments where like you just you dance to your parents shit while you're. Dancing Denton, and then you listened and then like you learn enough Spanish to understand the lyrics and you go. About capitalism. We're like this is about the perils of love like religious fanaticism. There's deep shit in the lyrics of those songs but I experienced it is like a kid dancing to it, and then I have a whole other life thing when I was old enough to appreciate it. So. That's an album I can buck with forever out of kids that don't relate him to guy from the Predator movies Predator too with Danny Glover. Yes. Let's get. Down and then another Jesuit just him as got on the walking dead sequel. and. He's the only again and he's like she's like are bound. White Kids Predator to. Find. New York Shit, but anyway yeah that's new. York show because he was Yankee was he was the seventies he wrote all the best songs of sunshine the seventies Three I gotTa pick a feeder alum at some point right but I listened to rent so many times I don't think I would I would stay in it it would probably be it probably would be something I don't know as well like Gershwin's porgy and bess or or like any sometime show like those are so fucking dense you you'll hear new should in every time losing to Sondheim like arrangement wise is like listening to Pun-, lyrically like you will get a new at the time. So probably like Sweeney, Sweeney Todd is number three. Kind of cheating. Do you play Lynn I'm talking about just competition like do you play keys or? Just well enough to write my shit and actually. When I started working with bill will appreciate this like it used to be like four tracks would play the bass here the piano here and it was. Terrible and then finally like most of heights got rid not garage band and him to govern the logic like I just eighty anything that not just three in my brain and blog these keys and to the point where it's part of the editing process like melody has to survive my shitty chops. Right that's facts. Take. Melody through the rough stages then you've got some. There are. Web No distance between the brain in their hands on I'm just not one of those guys. It's gotTA survive my jocks. and. Then sometimes I find should along the way while I'm trying to get it out of my head ha okay. Number Four. Songs in the key life, I could list that forever and be very, very happy. I could pick any stevie academic interventions. I could. You know like we were we were talking about twitter about like the talking book being better than songs and I was like. I think. I'm. More songs is a massive but talking about kind of come back to more. So GD. Trying to get more music. The Little Desert Island situation you've got me into. The least liked one which is full of. Oats live. Plants plants. Say 'cause he arts. If I'm stuck with the record for year I'm now I just have Hasn't been a great stevie jukebox musical. I've imagined it many times like you. Land.

"Doesn't want to have to remember skit. Curb there's. No, Jesse for and and. and Larry. Larry David gets an idea and you was show at kind of workout the beats and they schedule it. By episode what they want to happen that is amazing I not a line of dialogue and refund. Then you also have to figure out your own relationship to Larry. I figured like all right. I can't be mean estimate because no one curses out. Larry? Like asthma can't be the guy 'cause like move is a legit genie just. Can't do what he does. So I was like I'll be the antagonists but I'm just GonNa be like really positive while I do the opposite of whatever he wants me to do like that was my whole thing was like early shirt barry be like, yeah I like it. Okay. We need to look at more shirts. Like just the opposite. Wrestling Because he knows how to deal with aggressive, but he doesn't know how to deal with like passive aggressive. The opposite of what he wants. So that was my way. So. Thank you. have. You have you planned it At least that you can talk about I. Guess the White Elephant in the room is. People are dying to know. What your next Broadway. venture will be which. You know again as you know I, I assume that this time is sort of like what nineteen eighty five was the Michael Jackson. After really but there's lesson you writing like I. Think. There's stuff in bad that I love dangerous legit. My favorite album because I was twelve when it came out and the music. What means the most to? I remember being in the mirror. Ask. Trials and obsessions like. US. But the thing but the thing is. Let me. Let me let me know. Artists. I think one of the dangers is to to go bigger. Like, there's attention to be like this. One's going to be even time thrilling like if you go to the topping yourself place like that's where. I think people mess up and and so I'm not gonNA write like us the react historical musical like. Twenty Times a day on twitter. Really Can you please write something. So people finally no I think people. No. Matter what side people have? Exactly. Good. Okay. The thing is, is the most artists will do what they call the departure album. We opposite of that. I was actually going to say I kinda Meyer Mike's Balls for actually saying you know what? I top thriller. Like. He's literally the only one that had a mountain and was like, all right. I'm climates other mountain which. I gotTA give it to okay I live albums five number. One songs from album is not a failure to me man. In the mirror leave me alone just on the phone wasn't on the cassette and it was a it was. But what I'm saying is bad. Yeah it's it's weird success, but it's still not my favorite. But what I'm saying is that people either like will do the opposite or bill try to top IT. But there's also middle ground people never explore the middle ground I guess for you. What would the opposite of Hamilton be like? A one man play or or Shakespeare in the park or One of my favorite books we use. Right right. A flavoring every decade. God I wish No. One of my favorite books in high school because remember I was like a film guy was rebel without a crew by Robert Rodriguez, who directed desperado City. His kids like. S She made his first movie for eight thousand dollars maxed out credit cards Mirage sold his blood and was like a lab rat in like like experiments to make money from. Trial. For his first movie and he Up On eight thousand dollars Iran, and so he wrote this book about like stop waiting for. Hollywood. Just make your own shit like that was really influential to like stop waiting for anybody make your own shit and he said after I made desperado everyone was waiting for the sophomore slump and everyone is waiting for software slump. So just do so much different shit the no one knows what your sophomore project it is. Like. That and that's basically what I've been trying to do like he did a segment for four rooms remember four room. Enjoy. For like a show on showtime like he just did like lots of different Shit. Like I was like, okay. I'M NOT GONNA go right into writing another musical after Hamilton I'm just GonNa go do lots of different shape until I amass enough ideas and have ideas for stuff I wanNA write. That is the length of Hamilton, but it doesn't tell me what form it wants to be like remember I thought Hamilton was going to be a mix tape like I thought I was going to be doing like a prince among thieves like that's what I. was like it was a concept album have rappers play the founders. I just didn't know any rappers yet like I drive. To get there. And so I have ideas for full length things but I don't know whether they're movies or whether they're concept albums or whether they're shows. These you know rappers now. So that whole concept album thing is like a thing of course, it can't be Hamilton but it can be so yeah. Yeah. So I I have an idea for something that I think could be a concept album and could be a play. But until I start really writing it, I am not going to know what it is. It'll tell me what it is. All right. So you just playing exceeds. Yeah. Okay. The Fun stuff gun to your head. What are? Be Five albums. And we can't know great hits man. That's why I hate that Rolling Stones List it's like come on you can't with things star time in there. That's every James Brown record. Gun to your head five records. That you. Are Forced to listen to. In solitary. Confinement. For years.

"For Malcolm X.. From Jamaica. That's just the part of the the. And the only you can say is everyone's right. It's not all in there and also live criticisms not cancellation. It's criticism and I continue this jury me that's I'm a I'm a big boy and I know what's not in there and What I console myself with his it's Fox conversations about what's not in it and about the faults of these folks and and House flawed the documents are in how flawed these men were the the the thing I take issue with is I don't think we glorify God for second I just don't think that was not my name. My aim was to tell compelling stories I have while I have you in that theater for two and a half hours and paint them as flawed as a piece of musical theatre can pay them. But like yes alright that's not in it. That's that's not that's not in it like and and end, and this was the springboard for that discussion. Yeah. Do you think you know 'cause seen in the heights just seeing? Yeah just seeing all like your black and Latino faces on stage. You know I mean that was probably the first bitter. Show I've been through since I was small. I, I. Haven't been in like the case and you know do you think that these stories in the way you're telling them? Have you seen that opened the door for more black and Latino people to tell their stories on Broadway? Yeah, I mean I'm always pessimistic about Broadway actually really optimistic about this moment because we're in the middle of A. Civil Rights movement in our country and. This is on pause so you cannot say, hi to deal with this. You cannot say you don't have time to talk about equity in the kinds of stories you're choosing to put your money into as Broadway producers. But listen I I started writing in the heights because. I don't dance well enough to be in west side. Story. And I when I was a senior in high school this musical by Paul Simon called the cake man came out and it was about Puerto Rican gang members in one thousand, nine, hundred, fifty s and as much as I. Love. Paul. Simon I was I what the fuck like this very over represented group on Broadway this Poi-. Members from the nineteen fifties. Can we literally have a show where we don't have a fucking knife in our hands? And so in the heights was borne. Out of an oath shit. No one's gonNA write your dream. Show. Pulse I'm going my favorite writers he did outright. Puerto Rico. I'm not expecting Paul sign this award and he loved the music and he wrote music that really fits in that world but like I just I just remembered because it also had mark Anthony have. We were blades it had a lot of. It like I remember having the highest hopes of ocean, your comes your dream show it's the kate man and then it's super wasn't and I. It was the Waco moment of like you have to create the thing that you want. To. Exist south because no one's GONNA. Make interestingly enough when we when I first came out, we got bad press saying that like in the heights didn't have enough teeth like it wasn't a real representation of Washington Heights. Dodge. And All about. But we were like we lived there. It's. there. We'd like. There the whole time you know you're only access to neighborhood is seeing it on the eleven o'clock news and you have no engagement with beyond that. That's all. I was I was curious what spoke to Ya you and build since we talked about there weren't many spaces for hip hop in that way when you were growing up like what were the shows to the cast album? What would the shells the spoke? At this might be in this. Well. Again I'm born nineteen eighty. So there's never a point where hip hops not part of my life. I have an older sister. She gets all the credit from my hip hop education. She took me to beat street in the theater. Cried the. Yeah I saw. She took him into wild style. took me to crush groove for my sixth grade graduation. My sister's present to me was pair of jeans and she took me to see class act starting, but he's A. Muslim. You'd be like, that's her hip hop. I stole her black sheep album. I stole her was dead album. That was. Digging in my sister's albums was how I fell in love with your money way. It's funny. I'll say Saudi I told somebody yesterday and we were viewing len and they literally like do make sure you bring up the fact that kid and play changed how hip hop was perceived in media and changed the way like started the real diversification I was I never thought about that like that kid and play is. Class Act. House. Partner. Is. Amazing. To what the cartoon? There's another great thing of sequels House party three has one of the funniest lines image cinema history when they accidentally give the grandma the porno instead of the turtles. Lines history. Think about Lynn is like a mere going record shopping for people lens. Great things when you were younger was he would make mix CDs like four everything and all the time and so like we had this bathroom that had like. This wallpaper sort of. Older. Had like. Like. TONS OF MIX CDs. We had this. We had a boombox got a CD player in the bathroom and it was only bathroom so we will play the. Turn on his big CDs and we listen to everything and so like those were the days of like Pun and and that kind of stuff and. That's all we listened to. It was like really heavy Latin music, select one Louis and Bert Santa Rosa and like alone ghetto why then like fucking hip hop all day long like all this stuff that we're talking about and so that's also is sort of. Dance. New. York's. Just, with other speaking of dance, like with all the the dancers. In the the break dancing edge where they were those people on Broadway already knew how to break or did you have to go and find? A mix of like breakers and folks who had. who had a little theater experience a lot of debuts heights like so many debuts with high end with Hamilton. Rama's made didn't he made his debut like you know the the thing is the shows I write are made for people who don't ordinarily get invited to get us on the more like. So with heights, bring it on, broke the record for the number of debuts thirty two broadway debuts with that show and that's the one I wrote. I co wrote in between in the heights and Hamilton but you know it's of the same principles at work like just like pop music and theater music should be friends like there's no reason there should be a separation there. Is there a pressure to bring? A name. To the show when you present it I, remember In an fail maybe. During the last or what not during the last one. But basically as getting a name would ensure that it can have an additional four months and additional. That's pressure comes with time I. Think every show goes through a version of it where the you hope the novelty of a new musical catches on the word of mouth catches on but there's a point at which the professional Broadway going have all seen it. and. Unless you have something to attract them, you know and that's when the name thing comes. But like I remember a Broadway producer told me like. Getting a name, a quote unquote celebrity named be in your show is like starting hard drugs like you don't get off it once you. Man Kansas. Point. So over dancing the stars and then.

"By the way. Did you guys catch Hamilton streaming on Disney plus. Mass, of course despite massive success, there's renewed criticism about how writer and Star Lin-manuel Miranda's didn't go deep enough into the founding fathers role in America slavery history and lend totally gets it. He replied to one twitter user with all the criticisms are valid the sheer Tony of complexities and failings of these people I couldn't get or wrestled with, but cut I took six years, and fit as much as I could in a two point five, our musical I did my best. It's all fair game
How Big Will the Hamilton Bump Be?
"You WanNa Talk Hamilton Yeah don't don't don't throw away your shot. Jason's is your. This is your chance. That's nice, so so Hamilton. Was filmed with nearly all of the original Broadway cast of the show back in June, two thousand sixteen. Before they started to depart the show including lin-manuel Miranda's who wrote the book music and lyrics. It was supposed to be a theatrical release last year, but instead of comes to Disney. Last last year is not supposed to be next year. In Twenty, twenty, one. Instead it arrives on Disney, plus on July third just in time for Independence Day hitting its ascension. Sorry bidding. It's very fitting. It is founding fathers and all that. So I I watched it with my wife yesterday. It's essentially the live stage production as you would see in the theater but you obviously the cameras getting close. You can kind of see the facial expressions, and obviously for Disney plus subscribers. It is free as as opposed to the hundreds and hundreds of dollars. You'd have to see Hamilton it's. It's free in the sense. You have to pay for a subscription to Disney plus though. That's true. You have to pay a nominal fee to actually become a member to Disney plus. That's true, so it's only a couple of bucks. Guess. Maybe I don't know. What you're talking about he. Now get mine. Free I don't have that. Disney hookup. Anyway anyway. So the other thing is obviously. There's no actual stage productions of Hamilton happening right now because of the pandemic, so it doubles as a way to get Hamilton to the masses. But also as a way to you know to get Broadway to the masses to get a theatrical production to the masses a at a time when there's no live theater happening right now. So we, we wash at you to keep. You saw Hamilton live right? Yeah, I did I. I saw it, so I saw the opening night of the. La Production. So I never saw the original Broadway cast much to my dismay. And going into the L. A. Show any actually if you google. Google Los Angeles Hamilton Premier. At Billboard Dot Com I wrote a story about it and that night like. Just a couple rows over like Lin Manuel. Miranda was there in. Like. A lot of the sort of original creative forces were there in the audience, and they went up on stage after the cast took their vows and spoke to the audience I went into kind of thinking like Oh my God is GonNa live up to the hype. because. So much has been said about the original. Broadway cast in how amazing they all were, and it's just a revelation and your own. My God in Lake. You kind of felt like you're watching like. They were like they became celebrities. There was no podcast became celebrities and know original broadcast doesn't always stay with a show. Obviously, you usually leave after year so I thought. Are these people really going to be as good as a Ritz broadcast? Even though all had seen at that point was like the Grammy Awards performance and the Tony Awards, performance, which had the original cast I'm like these people are amazing so I see it now like these people are amazing, too. So I just saw like by Gosh it has it. Has I think it has obviously? It's a lot of just like the music. Music and the lyrics, and the story in the staging enemy just found amazing talent to sing and dance and act, and so anyone's who've been anyone. It's been fortunate enough to see the show at all has seen an amazing experience, but there have been tons and tons of people that never got to see the original Broadway cast, which is why it's so great that Disney plus did this and you are actually you know. People were actually able to see the Broadway cast broadcast. Yeah, I think it works in both in both instances for for people who have either never seen Hamilton or people who have seen other iterations of Hamilton so for for me I'd never seen the play all I've never seen a production of the play and I you know you you think about whether it. If I get to see it in in on Disney plus if I'm GonNa, WanNa see it live, but it's almost like buying an album and first of all. I thought it was tremendous. It really does kind of live up to the hype, and it's just such an impressive story but it's almost like buying an album watching it at home versus going to a concert where it's you know. Know seeing it live I can only imagine it being so enveloping that even after seeing it on Disney plus I kinda WanNa see live now so i. mean I I think that it works in in that regard, and then in the other regard. Might my parents actually saw Hamilton on Broadway in February this past February for my dad's birthday. They went, and you know they now they get to see obviously. The most of the original cast had gone, but now they get to watch the Disney plus version so so they can see the original cast performance, and see the close up speaking, which is not nothing because you know they had You know I think they have like knows we see yeah. And host, but really far yeah. look at that, but you know you. You're even the even the cheapest seats to see Hamilton and Broadway hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of dollars And now they get to see you know lin-manuel, unless the ONUM and V digs all all of them. Being Jonathan. Yeah it's friend of the PIE. Ask Jonathan Groff friend of the podcast John Draft. Who was who was hilarious. He spits a lot anyway.
"lin manuel miranda" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"Lin Manuel Miranda. Worked with your dad back in two thousand and one. Yes, on a race for mayor Friday for air. You remember it well, and I remember him saying to me then you know Mike Kid. He really. He likes to perform really talented, he writes. That just know if you can make a living doing the I didn't either, and he was, so he said. I want to encourage him, but what what tell me about. He he's one of the. Great Political Consultants in New York. You must have grown up around politics. Your mom's a clinical psychologist how you ended up as a storyteller and. Musician and all of that I if you were to write a recipe for Hamilton said, let's make the guys Mama psychologist and put the Guy's dad and politics. It's the perfect recipe for Hamilton. Respect. But I think. Both of those professions really are about telling stories. It's about the stories we tell ourselves about the stories we tell the world about. My. Parents met in Grad School for Psychology and my dad. Imagine my dad trying to have patience with a patient you couldn't. And so he sort of took everything he learned and applied it to the world of politics and consulting. And advocacy. But it's the same skill set. It's about creating a narrative and it's about How ourselves and how we project I always say that always say people, so you were a reporter. How did you become a political political? It's the same it's the same deal. Were telling stories and hopefully authentic? Stories which I think is what makes them yeah. I'm hearing. You think you're interviewing me, but I'm actually going to interview you because I'm really interested in your involvement with the West. Wing West Wing fanatic. and. I genuinely believe that that President Santos storyline towards the end sort of set the template for how Barack Obama won the presidency in two thousand well, here's an interesting story ally. Addy was by then I think he may have been the chief writer by then on the Wesleyan. and He. Called me and he something of creating this character, and it was the Santos character and you. We just won the Senate race in Illinois with Obama said I'm interested in your experiences. Because I think it might help me shape this character, so we had a long conversation, but but you know. I WANNA. Talk to you about another guy worked for which Freddie for an experience he had and Freddie is. You Know Because Your Dad was intimately? Vow was running to become the first Hispanic mayor of New York and he told us that some major figure in New York to come to some private club. and said to him Freddie. You see all these people around you. They're not gonNA. Let you become mayor of New York. You're not from here. And I said that that was a really searing experience and the character. You create needs to be aware of that. Yeah, and so you're right that the those characters. Helped animate Santos, and maybe I mean the West Wing, still reading I mean I'm amazed I. have this to Politics University of Chicago these kids? They have West Wing Nights. There's still on the West Wing. Why what is it about the West Wing? Well, it's it's part idealism, its parts humanity right we. Those characters are really flawed I mean. If Toby Siegler was really in charge of communication, he's having breakdowns and fits of idealism. It would be a very dysfunctional office, but maybe realistic. Maybe realistic I don't know. But you hope that the people in that building are having the kind of idealistic debates that you hope that that's what's going on in the highest halts a power that they're actually talking about what's best for the world, and they fall short end. They lose votes, but. They're aiming for. The best of US and they do, and it's sorkin captured it in a really sort of brilliant way and in a style that is so like your. Smartest friends talking on their best day because sometimes too smart actually. Get so smart that. It you almost. Felt like saying enough already okay, nobody talks fast in this smart or is a witty and re re retort, but. Do you feel you wrote this amazing piece of work when you look at today's Politics and you think of the people who started this whole deal, the founding fathers. What would they say about? about the politics of today I think they recognize some of it I. Think they'd be off at the speed of it. I think that's the thing that is really different from then to now because honestly. The fights just our fights. I think of our country's debates. The same fights you would have with your siblings like the fight you have with your brother or sister. Now is the same you had when you were little kids. It's just the adult variation, but it's about your temperament, and it's about what you want and. act like, but I think our country debates are the same it's what is the size and shape of role in our daily lives. What is our role regards to other countries what? The legacy of slavery and its reverberations. What are the effects of that? These are things we're going to be discussing as long as we are a country, and and we're still discussing those things in this campaign, but I think the founders would be awed that you could write a tweet, and it would shape the conversation for a day, and that the number of issues spinning happening so fast. I mean they were already doing it with newspapers Jefferson had a newspaper Hamilton newspaper. They talk some about each other across these newspapers. I mean dirty pool already existed. Way Dirty in fact, some of the things that were done in nineteen th century. If. There were raised to the level of television now for. Would.
The revolution comes again: Miranda and Kail on 'Hamilton'

Kerry Washington on Hollywood's Diversity Problem
"The entertainment industry begins the slow process of returning to work. Will there be as Carrie? Washington says a real shift in institutional practices can there be a different and more diverse Hollywood. We know because of the coronavirus. There will be changes in how people do their work. But. What about the work itself? How far will the industry reset? Actually go? This is Hollywood the sequel. Welcome to our new podcast from La Studios. Each week were sitting down with some of the sharpest minds in the entertainment business to talk about where Hollywood might be headed as it returns to work. We'll get into the external changes for production marketing distribution, and with the movie theater business in tatters. What even defines ahead? We'll also explore the biggest question of all. Will there be systemic change that finally corrects the inequalities that may have been acknowledged, but hardly repaired. And that's where we'll begin this first episode with actor and producer. Kerry Washington. You know her from the TV series scandal. We spoke initially in mid-may, and we'll share that conversation in a bit, but after the killings of George Floyd Brianna, Taylor Ahmad Arboretum and the protests against police, brutality and systemic racism that followed we wanted to get carries thoughts on how this moment might affect the entertainment industry and America itself. I think one of the things that is challenging to. METABOLIZE is that. Not, that much has changed for black people in the last couple of weeks. But there's a different response to it. And so I think. The sentiments of the moment that feel revelatory. I don't feel like those feelings belong to me this. This is not a moment of revelation, but I'm watching the revelation. Unfold around me for people. And I'm grateful that that as a not even as a country, but that the world is showing up for black lives. In a different way. But this is what what has been the reality, this level of danger and anger and fear and. Maybe trauma lack of safety like these have been the realities for black Americans since there were black Americans. There are fundamental differences between a moment and a turning point and I'm wondering optimistically even. Is there a way that real change not only in the country, but also in the business that you work in. Can come out of this. I think so. I think I can hope so. You know I mean we're not. None of us have a crystal ball. It'll be the historians that tell us years from now whether this was a flash point a turning point. But I? I it feels it certainly feels for me like something is different, and like we have to be willing to look at ourselves. Regardless of what industry were in. Do you hope comes out of it? What are you hope changes I? Mean what what would you say would mark progress or change? I think a more radical acceptance of Anti Racist, society policies and culture because I think what people are realizing is that it's not enough to just not be racist that because our institutions. Were built. In the fabric of racism because our country was born, you know with. Black Americans being designated a fraction of human being like it's. It's not enough to just not be racist. We have to be actively anti-racist. and for that desire to come from. A deep. Understanding that we all deserve full rights of humanity. Yes all lives matter, but accepting that to be an anti-racist society. We have to affirm that black lives matter. I think that's I. think that's where we're at I think people are finally kind of. That and our institutions need to understand that not just. Interpersonal relationships, it's important that we're having those conversations that our dinner tables in in our classrooms, but also at the highest levels in our systems of government in our systems that are supposedly built for public safety. We have to ask ourselves. Who Do we deem the public? And who do we deem the enemy? so. I, I'm hoping that I'm hoping that that this all of this new. revelatory reflection lends itself to transformation, not just the hearts and minds, but also institutional practices, and those institutions can include you know arts organizations like the theater industry. Because there's this letter Hashtag, we see you which calls out racism in the theater. It signed by people like Sterling K.. Brown is Array Lin Manuel Miranda I. Think you shared it on twitter. What comes out of that and the best possible outcome to me. It seems really obvious like. We look at ourselves to get better and do better. That's the that's the practice of self. Reflection is to ask ourselves how we can do better so I mean even the language of inclusivity and diversity right like when we say that we're committed to diversity its diverse from what we're still centering whiteness as the most important thing and allowing or inviting diversity around that or when we talk about inclusivity. They're still an in out, so we're still centering certain kinds of people and you know maybe in tiny fractions allowing admitting other people to the table, so there's just so much of it that needs to be reexamined and and look at
Hamilton's Choreographer Explains The Secret Messages In Its Dance Moves
"Many people nationwide have been waiting for Hamilton to hit Disney plus with the hit Broadway musical, fittingly arriving right before Independence Day, and when the country could really use an uplifting and patriotic story about resilience.

Andy Plankton Beulah. WanNa Tony for his work on it so when you're watching Hamilton. Pay Close attention to the movements of both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Every gesture is designed to highlight the personalities or foreshadow the story Hamilton was a free thinker while Burr was rigid. That's why Andy explains to playbill quote. Every movement Aaron makes is linear while everything with Hamilton is circular. If either characters falling into his cycle of fate, they turn to the left, and if they're resisting fate, they turn to the right fascinating

Are you able to have the level of engagement and business that you typically do and is your mind going in different directions? Because you are in a quiet space outside of your children. Probably, but like you said earlier you don't have the hustle and bustle of like Manhattan all around you. You're not on stage. You're not flying to different places in America or other countries with productions. You're not on a film set so is is your mind in a different place right now, and is that leading to?

King Lear or the Sonnets, now that the plagues have closed all the play houses I'm afraid I can't because I'm as worried about the world as anyone else. I think I wake up with stomach aches more often than I. don't because I. Worry about what's going on. I worry about. My city reopening too soon in having a second spike. I worry about. The protesters and hoping they're okay and I worry about. I worry about all the things. Everyone is worried about and. I find that because I'm home, it is harder to. Because I can't physically distance myself from my particular bubble like myself from those thoughts either and I think that's okay like the world is being remade in a fundamentally different way because of this pandemic, and just because of where we are and artists have to give themselves. The latitude to acknowledge that. So give yourself a break. If you're not writing right now I do find that the self imposed deadlines, and even projects of my own where I say okay. I'm going to write this and I'm going to have it by Friday. Allow me to push the world away and do that but I.

"That is an early awareness of mortality which I had a pretty at a pretty young age and a lot of ways. It's funny. I was talking to someone else about how when you start writing something, you think it's about one thing, and then it starts telling you what it's really about. And my sensation that happens on everything. I've written. That's any good. My sensation on Hamilton with that was as I began to write Hamilton and I began to write burr. They have fundamentally different approaches to the ticking clock, Burg for the most part is paralyzed by it because he comes from a legacy came from very accomplished parents. Famous grandfather. and. He's paralyzed with what to do with that time and Hamilton. Here's the ticking clock as I gotta get as much done as I can good bad or indifferent. and. Berl learns from Hamilton in my version of the show I can't speak to reality in my version of the show, Berlin. To put himself in the arena from Hamilton Hamilton steps away from the arena in the face of loss. And at the moment when they least act like themselves when Hamilton, cautious and burs reckless, one kills the other, and that's how they remembered forever. You mentioned your early awareness of mortality. What were you referring to? Oh. Well when I was about three four years old my best friend round. One of those sort of horrible stories. That has no one's fault. and. But you know I have A. I have like this sort of six months of gray in my childhood memories. That has just you know. Her being absent at the nursery school uptown that we both attended. And so. I think that weirdly works its way into everything that notion of what we leave behind. And what do we do with the time we're given I think. that. That I think that incident probably works its way into a lot of my subconscious. One of the great things that Hamilton accomplished is giving great parts to African. American actors and other people of Color who might not have gotten major roles in other productions. Our productions don't have opportunities for people of Color and even with colorblind casting doesn't mean it's going to be. equal and in in the casting. Was that an issue for you when you were trying to find a place for yourself on Broadway I mean you you? You found your place through writing in the heights you know, and then giving yourself a big part in it. Listen I'm a musical theater composer because I couldn't be just a musical theater actor if I had settled for being. Being a musical theater actor, IB hopefully auditioning for a bus and truck of west side story somewhere and just like the mortality landed on me. Early like at the end of Highschool. The realization landed on me early like there's no life for you musical theater, because there are no parts, and in the heights, really came out of a result of seeing writing what I saw as missing. In the musical theater cannon for Latinos just. Really as simple as can we not be holding knives in a gang in the fifties because that exists, and what do we have to show for it? Nearly fifty years later every time I write a piece of theater. I'm trying to get on the board. And that continued with with Hamilton of how can we write? The parts that I didn't see existing the really. The only thing I saw that really gave me permission to write musicals rent. which was incredibly diverse cast, and I went from being a fan of musicals to writing musicals when I saw that show because it was the thing that gave me. Permission and gave an it was contemporary, and it had leno actors and black actors, and it told me you're allowed to write what you know into a show. No other musical had told me that by the time I'm in my teens remember Terry. Course lines already a period piece. yeah, so it was. It was truly the first contemporary musical. I'd seen and. Got Me from. Being a kid who was in school musicals and love them, but just thought they were written by other people like old white people on the upper east side to. Giving me permission. And it's been gratifying to see how. These shows heights and Hamilton in particular like not only provide employment. Provide like permission an amplification of a lot of other voices. Yeah rent also spoke to very contemporary issues. The the AIDS epidemic they were gay characters and Trans Characters and young people trying to be artists, and not sure if they were gonNA, make it or not, you've said that the character and rent that you most related to was mark, and he's the character who went around with his video camera shooting everything he wanted to be a filmmaker. Why did you identify with that? Because I was the guy who went around with my. Sudi everything it was an old vhs camcorder, and then later like A. VHF HSE, which were the littler ones, but it was easier for me. In that painful awkwardness of high school to be the Guy Documenting. And you know being the guy just hanging out and again knowing my father's work ethic, I'm not a guy who's comfortable, just hanging out. I don't know what to do to sit I I'm know what it means to sit on the steps all we get. And so I was the self-appointed documentary among my group of Friends, so imagine my shock when Jonathan Larson. Has These lyrics were? He goes martling for his work. Mark Hides in his work. You pretend to create and. When you really detach from feeling alive it's all about stop sitting on the sidelines and live your life. So that's another way rent. Called me out like very specifically.

Shetler Studios In New York City Closes Due To Economic Downturn
"Theaters large and small across the country are closed. Due to the coronavirus pandemic which means a lot of businesses that support them are also on hold and one of those with Shetler studios in Manhattan. It was a place where New York theater artists from. The famous to the yet to be discovered auditioned and rehearsed but shetler studios announced that a can't hold on as Jeff London reports this iconic studios closing his sent shockwaves through the theater. Community cabaret producer. Robert Schneider says he worked on almost all of his shows. It Shetler Studios. Shetler was a big blow to a lot of us because to us. That's the home. That's the home. Wear whatever you see on stage. That finished product was all created at Shutler. Schneider says it was affordable so it attracted everyone from Broadway stars to up-and-comers he recalls waiting for an elevator that took forever with a group of college students. And I hear one of the girls say boy I just WanNa get an agent and be successful. I don't know what's going to happen next for me. At the same time she gets on the elevator the other elevator doors open and I swear to you. Christine Baranowski walks out to me. This is incredible. You're watching someone who's reached the peak of their journey right next to someone who's just beginning their journey but that's Shetler and that happened like on a daily basis. Shetler is part of the New York theater community as much as Phantom of the opera or something way more visible is theater and cabaret producer Jennifer Ashley Temper. The second that this was all announced and I posted about it so many people came out of the woodwork. To like talk about Shetler. There's no one that hasn't worked there when he heard. Shetler was closing Lin Manuel Miranda's sent out a tweet recalling how he tried out Hamilton material there. Oh my goodness. The odds of sadness in grief over the death of the studios has been literally overwhelming owner run. Shetler opened his facility. Thirty years ago it grew to twenty three thousand square feet on three floors and we pride ourselves in being a professional home away from home. Not only for teaching acting and singing but for auditions rehearsals in performing all in complex for Fifteen Years Janice Goldberg Co directed. The End Theater Company. A tiny off Broadway group and says she sometimes spent five days a week at Shetler studios. It's almost visceral loss. If you've spent so many hours in a place doing something you love and bringing ideas and people's work and your own work to fruition have that energy behind you and then all the sudden that's taken away forever. It's a blow but owner Ron. Shetler says he felt he had no choice but to close the enormous way to finances required to put everything on hold in the fact that everything that we do in the studios can't be done under the confines of the covert Pandemic Protocol and that the entertainment world will be the last open up again. That made the decision quite imminent. I DIDN'T WANNA stick my head in the sand and just Deny what was going on again producer Robert Schneider. It's very hard for me. Because the beginning of my career in the city was all done at Shetler I practically lived at Shetler and now I'm going to have to find new home but those memories I would not trade for anything for NPR news. I'm Jeff London in New York.

"Lewis in the film talk about your parents and about how relentless they were about achievement. If you've got a ninety five and somebody else got one hundred on a test you need to go figure out a way to get those other five points and there's a moment in the film where Your Son. Linh has to make a decision about his life and about whether or not. He should do what his job is. Which is teaching or what his calling is which is theater and you have correspondents about that decision. And it's a beautiful moment in the film. I'm wondering about your feelings and watching that scene and Lynn about hearing that story all over again and how it easily could have gone the other direction for a very very long time I kept telling Leeman. Well 'cause we had no doubt ever ever seen. This kid was a baby that he will be in. Show business ha so we spoke a lot about Ruben Blades who is up MC performer. An artist and writer and a lawyer from a prestigious university so I kept telling Leeman Wail Ruben Blades. It's your idol. You could go and get a law degree and continue to do your art because you have it in Roman blades. But I knew that that was not really was more my fantasy of what should happen. And I I push my fantasies as much as I can. I also have a wife who's totally grounded in reality. Who kept telling me. How did that happen? Give it up so this was the moment were record comes straight and and say to him. I wish I could tell you to get a real job. But that's not going to happen. So let's follow your dreams. What about that moment where you really are at a crossroads? Yeah I was sort of the. The difficulty was not that I didn't like teaching. The difficulty was that I loved teaching. I still I still love teaching. So I could very easily see the Mr Holland's opus version of my life before me where I happily teach at my old high school and never finished that symphony. You know what I mean And so I was. I was happy. He he nudged me in the way he did. And and it was a more uncertain twenties. Because you're you're you're kind of. You're hoping teachers get sick.

"lin manuel miranda" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"Digs. What was it like for you to deal with the consequences of making a a hip hop thing in a social context where many of the people who are Watching at and listening to it are not hip hop people and may literally have no experience with hip hop. Yeah I mean I think you actually put it more bluntly viewed which you know. What do you say to people who go? I don't like hip hop but I love this and my android yet. No but but my answer to that because I got that a fair amount in my answer to that is I'm so sorry you're missing so much of the show. Aw I would say that to them Because this is a show with a lot of on ramps And again it gets back to that bringing all of yourself into the room. There are as many musical theater references in this As there are hip hop references. Didn't you ever let me restate late this Lynn. You're famous for your generous spirit and warm spirit and in the time that you and I have interacted in life I have found that to be accurate like an insult but no it's not leading to an insult salt lake. Didn't you ever just run out of patience with that medicine. Lake with just most people's weird sideways talk about hip hop that was disguised as a complement to your like the combination of your. Life's work the thing that's going to be on your doom stone. Yeah but again at the same time we're we're we're inviting everyone into the room and You know I think that throughout my career. I've run into purists and snobbery from purists from both sides of this is hip hop. This isn't hip hop this musical theater. This this isn't musical theatre And I think the vast majority of us The silent majority if that wants to politically loaded word the silent majority of us just like good that speaks to us. And in whatever form that comes in and I just you know I I really sort of. If there's any side mission I have in this career in terms of writing for theatre. It's that popular music and theater. Music used to be the same aimed thing. I wasn't alive during it seventy years before us. But the Gershwin's you'd hear them on the radio and then you'd hear their song in the Broadway show that night or you'd hear Rogers and Hammerstein on the radio and at certain point those things Split But I think it's my side mission to be like I want to play musical theater music. You can listen to loud in the radio loud in your car stereo and and so I just bring everything I love to wet. I'm writing so you are A producer and sometime member of Freestyle Love Supreme. Who have a show on Broadway right now? this is on the long list of things that You and your colleagues have pulled off that that I read about once was happening in New York and thought what a terrible idea. Thank you This is theatrical performance. Group grounded in Freestyle style rapping. And since you're on my show I'm GonNa make you rap. I hope that's okay you. You didn't make feed wrap but that's true I didn't I should have well you know. What can I talk? Can I tell you the truth. I asked if he would if you would go off the dome and he said No. You made the mistake of saying yes. Lynn feeds incredibly good at it. But he gets he still really nervous about it before every show. We're going to drop drop a beat that you will hear over the telephone. You and I are separated right now by three thousand miles so this will be like This will be like one of those rap records that somebody records words while there's like one of those shine albums that he recorded while he was still in prison. Because you're wrapping over the telephone. It will sound will not sound like that to our audience. Because there's microphones on both ends but all right don't you don't you link me up off. beat man yeah no no. We'll walk we'll get you on. Beat Kevin my producer. Kevin's at drummer. He gets it so Kevin. So you and you can buy what you can rap about whatever you want do you need to. Do you want anything more than that. How `Bout I just sort of sum up what we've talked about in the past hour gorgeous Turned up. Raise my snare okay. Before I was in bloom he talked about. What do you bring to the room? You stay up late nights wondering where you are when you're in Washington Heights. Do you go down to the upper east side when they Salem and wealthy you let this slide you say Lynn get real excited. Say Okay. One day I'll be a writer. Then you figure it out if it pushed through your fear and you doubt you go to college and you realize like musical theater top scared to go off. The top Dhabi was. Because that's the buzz so you just say whatever it is because you keep going you try to write a show because you can't be Bernardo you don't have that flow and you don't have that extension in your leg. You're not a Greek guy with brown makeup on your face and just keep going to you right in the heights. Turns Out Nice the beats come in but I'm trying to stay and on it. I'm really more than enough. God bless you sir. The beat was coming in and out while I was doing that was technical that was technical difficulty level. Twelve twelve out of ten. You know what that's like that's like When when my man from a wits dude from From Kimmy Schmidt called Titus Titus. That's that's like one of my man. Titus was in guys and dolls on the On the Tony Awards on television and it's Mike went out. It's very tough to hear that you you killed it Lynn. God bless you. God bless you for doing that and I. I sure appreciate you taking the time to come beyond on Bullseye I'm glad we I'm glad we made it happen and thank thanks for. Thanks for all your support over the years awesome. Thanks man okay.
