"The conventional criticism of diverse casting is that it violates some unspoken rule about realism. It's utterly one way traffic. He will not be getting any white people.

But as npr's film critic bob mandela explains cross cultural casting has always raised eyebrows even though it's as old as casting itself in the fifth century bc when the greek playwright escalates needed a defense attorney for his leading man in the tragedy or sta he picked the god apollo choice. You do not make. If you're worried about vera similitude in casting live theater has always assumed.

"Winning composer. Lyricist and actor. Lin manuel miranda. He's going to talk about the story behind his first broadway. Musical and now feature film in the heights lin. Manuel miranda welcome to the daily social distancing. Show are always a pleasure so everything you right. Turns to gold everything you do seems to be a smash success. You will now here on the show to talk about a book about the film. That many people are seeing as the vaccine to the world that we've been living in for so long feels like now. The book about the successful movie about the successful brewery play is now also going to be a success. Tell me what this book is about. And most importantly if i read this book will i be able to also make hamilton can do a hamilton. It's -struction guide is precisely the underappreciated historical figure and no. I think it's funny actually. Today is the fourteenth anniversary of us. Winning the tony for best musical this musical has been in my life since i was nineteen years old and so it's a lot to cover in a book. My co writer. Jeremy says this is like the godfather part two of the books because it goes before hamilton it has like the stories before hamilton. Including in after. Because it's it's so much about meeting. The collaborator is that i would go on to work with hamilton on. But also he follows all these other journeys like chris jackson. Who played any in the original show in please. Mr soft. The opposite might be doggone guy in the movie. He met his wife when she was playing nina and he was bending workshop. I remember their chemistry read when we when they held hands. But it wasn't in my script that they like how old they are actually falling in love and real time in myself and so like so much of my life is bound up in the journey of it and so i do annotations on the lyrics of all of the songs. Jeremy sort of tells lots of stories kiara micro writer contributes essays specifically about specific moments in the show transitions to the film so we just try to cover as much as we. Can it such an insane story that i feel like can never be replicated because yeah you all in one thousand nine year old student. Who's who's just like learning about this world and then you go like man. I have this musical in my head. And there's this thing i want to try and do and what i what i love to see is is the journey because like you said earlier about the godfather and then the story before he's like sometimes people will experience your work in a non linear fashion. I'm one of those people. So i wasn't around for in the heights new york or anything so now i experienced hamilton. I was like wow. This is amazing. You know he did something before this. And you go and you go backwards and then you come forward with it. What i've always found fascinating how you try and break the idea of what the thing is. And who's supposed to be in the thing you know you do that with hamilton. I mean people were freaking out at some point. They're like aaron brown black man. How can this be in you. Know what the sisters all of different races but the story never broke. I'd love to know way you thought to yourself. You know what we can tell stories and we can include people and we can change the way we present things in the world and it will be successful or did you doubt that it could be successful. I think i doubted it at every phase but your belief in the idea has to be stronger than what the world is proposing right like your job as an artist to right. What's missing. Like i did not see a future for myself in musical theater. The other thing. I'll add to like that. Initial impulse back. When i was in college was like it was the first. Latin pop boom was happening. It was like martin like in leather pants and a couple of life. Mark anthony who. We all loved singing in english. For the first time it was like enrica glazed. Yes and i remember being like oh all those guys are really hot. I'm not going to be another lane. That has not open to me so again. It's about like writing what's missing with with hamilton. I honestly was surprised that people were surprised about the casting because it was a hip hop in aren be musical like you can tell very clearly like that my inspiration for what i'm pulling is an all white cast. You'd think i messed up like someone someone messed up along the way ron and so within the heights again like is it was just like how many of us can i get on the board like. That's that's the goal is like we're all gonna be in this thing and can we tell stories that are not about like latinos from the fifties with knives in their hands which was incredibly overrepresented in musical theater. Weirdly applying fifties gangsters. Oh man that's hilarious. Because in south. Africa was me for like most of my tv. Anything's anything. Everyone ross me to do in south africa. It was like the stereotype of people who look at me. Them the colored gang. So that's what they are. Trevor you're going to be the gangsta and the next thing that'd be like trump. this is a new role. You can play a reformed gangster and they'll be like for this one you you're looking at someone who might be against it. Used to be gangster. Yeah it was always gang related in some way shape or form even even though you're somebody who's always challenge these things even though you've always you've always strive to write people increase these stories. You haven't been immune from criticism and what was really interesting and beautiful tree was your response to some of the criticism that you got in the heights in terms of color is in. You know some people said. Hey lynn we love your work. We love what you're doing but man it feels like there's so many latinos who are not not represented here you got all these f. latinos who could be in the movie and who on the movie and you responded and it was interesting. You didn't say like. I can do whatever i want. You know. this is my story. I will like hey. We're listening and it was interesting that you you basically said i'm trying to make this world and i can do better and i felt defensive when you'll be enough linda so much black people singing on broadway. I'm doing to lynn. You tearing down one of our own but you. I honestly would love to know how you approach that criticism and what you think you could do better because you responded to it so meaningfully. Yeah well again like i. Don't i can't legislate how people feel like again. All i want is for this neighborhood to feel seen and there's a segment of it that doesn't feel seen and they're saying that like you have to acknowledge that and let it in and you know all i can do is learn from it and promised to do better again. There's so much effort. Luckily that in the movie the beef really was specifically dark-skinned after latinos in leading roles in those leading principal roles and like. Why can't in this. And i totally understand that and i and i receive it and i just have to do better on the next one but again like that is we took so much love and care and filmed on location and and so like it's like i'm happy to take the learning from it and bring that to the next one and also holds space to be proud of this thing. We made that has been my life. So i have to be able to hold both those things because they both true like you are hearing from this community. That feels under-represented. That is hurting paradox. Yeah and and like we made this thing. And i'm tired of this thing and we don't get to make things like this much so like i have to just be able to hold it all as a creative. I wonder if that is something that becomes just a space occupied in occupied in your mind or does it become a bird. And how do you prevent it from becoming a burden you know like how. How do you live in a space where you go no. I'm always trying to tell the best story. I'm always trying to have everybody involved. But i'm not trying to be like specific about you..

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.

I think that this is gonna have a lot of Lot of success at the Golden Globes tonight. 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.

I think the winners are going to be Frances McDormand and I just I don't know how Chadwick Boseman Doesn't win. He's amazing in the movie Ma Rainey's black bottom. But you know the fact that he passed away the young age and nobody knew that he was fighting cancer.

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.

Truth under the Hamilton better now, the Hamilton banner. Has to speak the self evident truths on behalf of black lives matter. Talk about kneeling. Just come to me so much about the black and brown artists who created revolutionised and change the world with culture, music and language of hip hop. That's that's pretty apparent that's true, Hamilton would not have existed, but for the efforts of many people of many cultures and colors. Around this country. So okay, continue the idea of the show. You know it doesn't exist. It doesn't exist that black and brown artists in our cast crew and production team who breathed life into the story every time it's performed. And while we live in a country where black people are under attack from emboldened white what? Whoa! Emboldened white supremacy. This is where you lose me. This is where you begin, and I guess Disney is probably thinking about whether or not they're going to include this in any statement that they might put on the front of this this film Hamilton that they're streaming on their service. I think they might want to look at something that is a little more factually accurate. I'm just saying, Perhaps that'd be a good idea. Lin Manuel Miranda, posting his thoughts about black lives matter as it relates to Hamilton police brutality, centuries a systemic, anti black racism centuries. You need to do a little more work on your history That happened after after this.

I think we should have everybody's back. I'm one of those people who kind of believes all lives matter, including the unborn.

Our list of resources organizations doing hard necessary work in this and I won't be posting those I'm just saying, this is what I think is going to happen to Hamilton. I think Disney will come out with a statement and they will say we're not removing it, but we will offer an educational Preview of the film where you can see of the discussion of the historical importance and the historical problems with Alexander Hamilton. Now Disney If you do this, if if Alexander Hamilton offends you and anyone out there who who feels Alexander Hamilton offends them.

There are a lot of stories out there that even with Congress, not Session. There's a lot going on and a lot going on outside of trying to keep our eye on the stories that mean a lot to you and mean a lot to everybody. In this country. The violence is a big story. We're going to get to the violence that popping up in some major cities in very big ways. And the fact that the president has offered to help and I don't see anybody raising their hands were also talking about the woke Olympics. Then we'll take your nominations for awarding someone or something. The woke Olympics Award What is a woke Olympics Award? It's what we confer on people who are just too woke for the rest of us. They're people who are just bending in field to the black lives matter movement, the people who would have raised our entire history the people who want everything they disagree with removed. And they want to be the arbiters of all of it. We were talking just a little bit ago about Hamilton and how the woke nation the spending Easters have jumped up and ordered demanded that Disney take down Hamilton. It must go. And I'm sure this is scaring Lin Manuel Miranda because he's made a great living and is now a superstar in Broadway and apparently now in film. Because of his play Hamilton, which I have not seen, and I'm hoping to see it on Disney. I'm wondering if Disney is going to do a gone with the wind. Are they going to pull it temporarily? I think that's probably what's going to happen. Just my guest. I have a friend who's a critic, and she may know she's seen it already. He saw a couple of weeks ago before Disney released this film, but I wonder if they're going to pull a gun with the wind. I wonder if the idea here they're going to get all this press now. Not that they didn't have a whole lot of press on this on this film before the controversy, But this may will get additional press in the in the tens of millions of dollars as we all talk about it. But I'm guessing Disney is going to stay well, we're not going to remove it, but we're going to do the same thing that was done with gone with the wind. We're going to put a four minute historical discussion, a disclaimer on the front and I'm betting it sounds a lot like what Lin Manuel Miranda posted on Social media. I'm betting that they, Hamilton Twitter account, and the video that was posted by Miranda is going to sound almost exactly like what Disney will post and this was Lin Manuel Miranda, saying that we stand on the side of justice and black lives matter. Maybe you should look into that organization a little bit, See what they do with the money. He who's behind black lives matter. See where they are putting their political Push. And who they're supported by and who they are supporting. But I think Lin Manuel Miranda is going to come back and say something like this is the writer of the show, take responsibility and apologize for my partner Moral failure..

Was that it wasn't a long, difficult process, a process of any adult black person could do by themselves, so to act like it's impossible. Black voter IDs are capable of doing it on their own. That's racism. That's low expectation. Racism. And that's where I see modern day racism in 2020 coming at me, It's not some guy anarchist on a mountain somewhere with a with a white hood on it's a little college grad. You know, white kid anti fur with a mask on with a black mask, all acting the fool talking about. I'm not people to get an idea and vote. That's the racism lesson in 2020. That's what's going on. It's on the left. It's on the left. I love it. I have said all of these things over the past couple of years, but to hear them all strung together in two minutes and 20 seconds so perfectly. I just thought that would warn some people's hearts. Speaking of warming some people's hearts of here into the Broadway musicals. I want to play a clip from Lin Manuel Miranda. He's the guy who created Hamilton, and it's nontraditional casting its they'd cast people of color is the white people, which, if it were reversed, would burn down Broadway. And now, even if it were a cartoon would burn down the cartoons. But Listen to Lin Manuel Miranda talk about institutional racism in Broadway in the theater. And then he says of a silver lining. You should never say the silver lining of the corona virus pandemic, but He thinks there's a silver lining to all of this. Cut. Seven. Go ahead. I find it encouraging that in this moment where we're discussing systemic racism on a hole in this country were also discussing it in our particular silo. And why doesn't the audience to Hamilton look as diverse as the cast of Hamilton? Why doesn't the crew backstage look ATT versus the cost of Hamilton and having meaningful conversations? In that regard. In this moment, where nothing is business, as usual, is a silver lining to the pandemic that we're in. That's a silver lining all the death all the destruction to the economy and lives. It is a silver lining. Ah, whole bunch of rich Broadway guys can sit around ago their racism. Really bad, huh? Yeah. Racism spans. Well, I feel better. They convert you signal to each other here is a little pro. Tip. Lin Manuel Miranda, You're making tens, If not hundreds of millions of dollars off of Hamilton. You could I don't know. Give tickets away. If you wanted the audience to look a certain way, go give the tickets. We don't sell them gave the tickets away to people that look like what you want to perform for and senses your production. You can hire whoever the hell you want in the crew. The question isn't why is society making you hire a white crew? The question is wire you hiring a white crew. I always wanted it. Well, it's a societal problem. You're the racist. You're the one doing these. You're the one making these decisions. Lastly, just a reminder of how awful Rachel Maddow is. Let's just remember the jobs report almost five million jobs.

"Air. I'm Terry Gross. Let's get back to my interview with Lin Manuel Miranda. He wrote the book music and lyrics for Hamilton, a filmed version of the original Broadway production with Lin Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton will start streaming on Disney plus July 3rd. So if you missed it or want to see it again, This will be an opportunity. The contacts of every story we hear kind of depends on when we hear it. And you're getting to that a little bit earlier and talking boat seeing Hamilton in London during the whole Brexit debate. So looking at Hamilton like right now where we're in the middle of a pandemic, and also it's a period of protests against racial inequality in the justice system, systemic racial inequality in the police and how people of color are treated. There's like a growing discussion about slavery as being like the original sin in the United States. So when you look at how it and through the perspective of like right now, Are there any things that you see? Different in it. Are there any aspects of Hamilton come to the fore? I do things think that there are things that hit differently. I've always sort of said that slavery is the original sin of this country. It's in the third line of our show. It's a system in which every Character in our show is complicity in some way or another on Geun. I think different things resonate differently. Hamilton, although he voiced anti slavery beliefs remained complicity in the system and other than calling out Jefferson on his hypocrisy with regards to slavery in Act two Doesn't really say much else over the course of Act two, and I think that's actually pretty honest. Like he didn't really do much about it. None of them did. None of them did enough. And Andi say that too, In the final moments of the song s O that hits differently now because we're we're having a conversation. We're having a real reckoning. Of how do you uproot? Original sin on that's that's That's the conversation that I feel like is happening right now. So one of the key things about Hamilton is the whole cast is their African American or other people of color. And so it's a really like different twist on the white founding fathers who were Slaveholders, or at least mostly recently, holders. So why did you want to give it that twist? And what? What meaning does that give, too? The American origin story. Yeah, well, it's you say, twist, but it was also caught up in the initial impulse of the idea itself. The notion that hip hop was uniquely suited to telling the story to telling Hamilton's Immigrant narrative I never pictured the literal founders were having so many conversations about the iconography of the founders. I'm not interested in statues. I'm not interested in how they look on our money. I was picturing Hamilton as a hip hop artist, and then As a result, as I'm reading Ron's book My Brain is minding it for who were the hip hop and R and B voices that can sort of tell these strands of the story. And and then I think it's incredibly meaningful to them populate our live show with black and brown artists. One because hip hop is a black art form. It was created by blacks and Latinos in the South Bronx in the seventies. And it's a love letter to that art form Justus much as it's a love letter to musical theater, and also it's It is. It's our country, too. You know, the the line we've always said is this is a story of America, then told by American now but to dig deeper and interrogate that a bit more like we we have to reckon with E. The origins of this because we inherited and and we're having a really big conversation right now, about what we want that to be going forward when there is such systemic Racism on such systemic police brutality and the world is stopped. It's a good time to have that conversation because nothing about the world right now is business as usual. Thinking how strange it must be for you. You know when when you were in the process of writing Hamilton. The Obama's had you to the White House and you performed it. You performed like part of the opening song. And then you know you're still working with the Obama's on various, You know, like fundraiser? Yeah, A and and now you are so opposed to the president. This is the president who threw paper towels and people after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Where your family is from s. Oh, it's just this like whiplash. I'm thinking for you of going through. You're a friend of the president's too now like you so opposed the president. Gap, and you know what's even crazier. Our show is about that, too. You know, Hamilton dies and every single one of his opponents becomes president. For like the next 20 some odd years. Kids well, Adams, who he was never a fan of and didn't like him, either. It was Jefferson and Madison, then James Monroe, who he almost got into a duel with, but we didn't have time to get into it in the show. So you know that that whiplash is also part of the reckoning that we're having as a zoo country, But I also you know I? I never bought into the illusion that the Obama's being in the White House ended racial issues in our country. Just the same way. I used to get the question all the time in that first year of now that Hamilton's here do you feel like Broadway will be more diverse, and I was like No, because shows take years to develop, and I know what's in the pipeline. And it's not next year is going to be even whiter than this year was we, You know, we landed in an incredible year that included shuffle along and allegiance. Lots of different Types of representation in that particular season, but again You know, I'm I heard myself for the whiplash in both the country and the particular corner of the world that is theater. So your father has been or maybe still is in politics. He worked with three New York mayor's, including Ed Koch. So you grew up with Very active political father. So did you grow up with a sense of ah of how politics is productive. It's good. It's a great process. Or did you grope with a much more cynical sense of it where it's about power? It's about ego, which version I don't think that those are exclusive. That's right, exclusive versions of politics. Certainly my dad represented a lot of Latino officials. I think the work he was proudest of was trying to get Freddy Ferrer elected. You know, we think a lot about alternate timelines. Right? And, you know, I think my dad still mourns the alternate timeline when you know the events of September 11th happened my primary day. And and for Borough President Ferrer had the momentum to to win that primary on didn't happen. Who knows how it would have turned out, but You know, I might. Even before my dad got work in politics. He was a community organizer. He was very involved with the school board's in our neighborhood because he really wanted to make sure my sister who was six years older could could get a good education in our neighborhood. And And so my experience of politics was like Kind of being dragged to meetings. You know, it's like when it's take your kid to work day. I'm coloring in the corner. Wild strategy is being discussed. So you know, it's sort of it's sort of a mix of all of it. It's it's more mundane to me. Than anything else. I love the West Wing. That's one of my favorite shows.
