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.

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.

"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'
"One of the most awaited movies of the summer is a play it was supposed to premiere next year in theaters but because of the corona virus pandemic it's streaming now on Disney plus my name is sandy we have lightning in a bottle with this company creator Lin Manuel Miranda says it was hard to get a ticket to Hamilton on Broadway in he wanted more people to see and basically self finance a three day in the movie and it took a long time to get that into place around also says Hamilton can speak to the nation's current racial inequities having full conversations in that regard in this moment where nothing is business as usual is a silver lining to the pandemic Miranda says he identified with Alexander Hamilton mostly because he was an immigrant I met Donahue
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. Lin Manuel Miranda has obviously been celebrated and deservedly so for his wide ranging contributions to the musical. There's a lot of other creative minds at upbringing choreographer. 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

"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. Living Your Life is creating art for you. Yes, but but that's different from your friends are all hanging out having a conversation and you're the one filming the conversation. So it was that your wave engaging in. Would you have been was? Issues like I I don't feel comfortable making everything out, but hey I wrote the script.

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.

Kid-Friendly TV Show Recommendations
"I think it's important to clarify. We're doing these recommendations are for very little kids and everything that we are talking about all of the recommendations on this episode our TV and I think there are parents of very young children and people who give advice to parents have very young children who tend to obsess over screen time and how much screen time a toddler should have look. These are unusual times and the first thing that I want to say before I even start doling out recommendations is just to remember that you're doing the best you can. You're doing fine if you need to put your toddler in front of a TV or a tablet and that is what needs to happen for you to stay sane for you to get your work done then so be it. Your kid is going to be fine. Your kid has you. That's what's important wanted to get that out there. I will also go so far. As to say as a person who obsessed about this didn't obsess about it goes back and forth the important part of the best you can is the you can part so if you are stuck on the fact well. The best is only two hours. It's the best that you can do. Given your circumstances your doing great exactly so. My first recommendation is something that my parents put in front of me. When I was very small child back in the seventies which has been fairly recently rebooted for new generations the electric company. The Electric Company is a educational children's program in the seventies it featured such wonderful luminaries as Rita Moreno. It has an extraordinarily charming kids show. That is really focused on education. But does it in such a warm and inviting and pleasant way so the original seventies electric company you can stream it via Amazon? It does cost money. You can find pretty lengthy excerpts of it on Youtube floating around and you know a lot of us who grew up in the seventies. We'll have you know like individual favorite moments from the electric company. I just remember that that was something that my parents really love to have on and around because though it was geared very very much too little kids and they say online. They say that it's geared toward five to nine but I think you can really go younger than that. My parents didn't go nuts watching it now. They recently rebooted the electric company from two thousand nine to twenty eleven. Those three seasons you can stream for free at PBS DOT ORG and As an incentive for parents who listen to this show and have not checked out the rebooted electric company one of the CAST members is William Jackson Harper. Who Played Chidi on the good place incentive to watch the new electric company Occasional guest spots and occasional music composition from one Lin. Manuel Miranda. I'LL AL. Obviously we could go back and forth. Comparing the quality of the two there is no way to compare something. You were nostalgic for as a child with something that is trying to duplicate that magic but that is a marvelous piece of educational programming. That is still entertaining. And that is right up there with stuff like Mister Rogers neighborhood and sesame street and all sorts of wonderful stuff that you can find on PBS kids. Electric Company is just a gorgeous piece of that puzzle. And I don't think it gets as much recognition as it should get especially compared to some of those other classic pieces of programming love it. Excellent Pack Loved Electric Company Berry. What is your first recommendation? We in our family when my oldest was younger and I was pregnant with my second son. It was really imperative for me to be sitting down lying down pretending that I didn't have a child for like two or three hours a day but I also had already watched so much Daniel Tiger which is wonderful and other. Pbs Kids thing. That probably taught me a lot about parenting but I wanted something that I also really liked from the creators of Wallace and GROMIT. Shaun the sheep which I have so many I mean I literally have photographs of both my husband and my then three year old watching. Shaun the sheep and both laughing at exactly the same amount because it is genuinely funny. It is the first thing that I think our family all liked the same amount where we really all were engaged in it in the same way. I you know you're not pretending to love you know Mom Tiger or whatever you're not pretending to be like Mom Tiger. I'm really actually mom. Tigers really haunted me over the years but I will say that Shaun. The sheep is both adorable in terms of its slapsticky laps. But it also looks gorgeous. So if you're not familiar with Wallace and gromit they created these these beautiful claymation sort of handmade aesthetic from our animations and Wallace and gromit. I also highly recommend but it's more of a sophisticated storyline. What's Great About Shaun? The sheep is that they are sort of snack. -able basically it is a brilliant sheep named Sean and the adventures of him and his farmer and his friends and it is genuinely funny. They're all of these little references. That are incredibly sophisticated without going over the head of your little ones. There's a kind of buster Keaton ask quality to it and I can watch them all the time. I really truly do not get sick of Shaun the sheep and my kids who are now as we said six nine still really love them. It's about that and maybe the British bake off are the only things that the entire family can agree on. If you've missed out on it please go back and watch it and you may find yourself watching it even without your children and where we find it. You can find it in a myriad of places. It is on Amazon prime. It is on Netflix. The Shaun the sheep extended universe of both movies and also the Wallace and gromit from the same animation studio are in many streaming places so if you just search Shaun the sheep you will find a gorgeous claymation that will make you. Giggle is a great pick and man. My kids now are nine thousand nine hundred sixteen and at no point in their lives. Has there been more than like a small handful of things that everyone in the family can enjoy at the same level at the exact same time so when you find one of those the love that you experience as a parent for that piece of entertainment is intense. I feel you on this one in a big way. Very very nice excellent. Pick Berry Hartman Steven. You'RE GONNA give us your second pick and This is not surprise. Me Buddy well. This one is specific to one of my kids particularly my older kid my son. Jona when he was little he obsessed over a cartoon that I watched as a kid called the wacky races and the wacky races were a very short lived. Hanna barbera cartoon aired in late. Nineteen sixty eight and a little bit in early sixty nine and then has kind of lived on in reruns. There's a DVD set that has like the complete collection of the wacky races. Hanna barbera cartoons are pretty primitive. You're talking about children's TV in the late sixties. You have some kind of squeaky gender stuff. There's like one female racer penelope pitstop. Who's like more concerned with her makeup than with racing? It has that name is amazing. Insert pitstop into my middle name. Very pitstop hardiman stuff hardiman The thing is though there's something about the way. This particular cartoon was structured where each episode of the show all of these goofy characters. They were the same characters. The plot couldn't be simpler. They're racing and at the end of each episode. One of the racers wins. There's a bad guy racer named Dick Dastardly. And his side kick Mutley. Who has that famous? Little wheezy laugh and my son who was obsessed with numbers kind of obsessed a certain amount of scorekeeping managed to latch into it. Not only as a piece of like fun cartoony entertainment but kind of latched onto it as like a statistician almost and really got obsessed with it. Even though there were only seventeen episodes he just watched them over and over and over again. Now the wacky races have existed in a couple of different forms. There's a wacky racist game for the we. The kids also played. This is also like electric company is one that got rebooted and it got rebooted a few years ago and once again if you're obsessed with the nineteen sixty eight version you're gonNA watch the version from twenty seventeen or two thousand eighteen and roll your eyes because it's not the exact entertainment that you grew up with but you look at the voice cast on this rebooted wacky races. It's Tom Kenny WHO's TV. Spongebob Jill Talley who's also voiced from. Spongebob she's also from Mister. Show like Tom. Kenny and Billy West. Who was stimpy. He was fry in Futurama. You have some really lovable voice. Cast working with this show. So lucky races isn't necessarily the top of very many people's list as far as like high quality children's programming but it was really important in my house and really had this nice kind of cross generational appeal where I got to feel nostalgia watching it and my kids hooked into it in ways that even I never did

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.

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.

I'm David in Cooley. In for Terry Gross back with more of Terry's 2017 interview with Lin Manuel Miranda creator of Hamilton the Broadway hip-hop musical about the founding fathers one eleven Tony's and the Pulitzer Prize for drama. This interview is one of our staff picks fix for interview of the decade. So I have to ask you about Stephen Sondheim because you have a very interesting history with him first of all when you directing west side story in high school. He came to your class because he he was the friend of the father of one of the students in the cast and so John Wiedeman For assassins and Pacific overtures overtures. Yeah okay so there's that so you get to meet him in high school and then and you get to write the Spanish lyrics for the Spanish production of West side story and then you got to be in a production. In of Merrily we roll along which is great sun high musical that always needs to be revived because the original Broadway run was very short and so this was a a city center. New York City recenter encores production. In fact I want to play just a little bit of you in that. which was gracious enough to? I saw you in this in this reduction production so you're playing lyricist who works with a composer but the composer has kind of like sold out and you know he's just doing like commercial work and the lyricist lyricist now has come to think of the composer instead of just being. His friend and collaborator Franklin Shepard. He thinks of him now is like Franklin Shepard Inc because he's so much about like deals and making money in this scene like you're getting interviewed on TV. You're Kinda pretty bitter about the whole collaboration Asian with composer. Now do you to work together not please how do we work together. Sure and he goes and I go and soon. We're humming along. ooh That's called writing song. Then he goes and I go and the phone goes and he does mater mater yesterday. Romano Jerome undermine drove butter butter butter butter. Do It's Rome. Click Sorry Charlie early so I go and he goes and I go and and soon. We're tapping away. Sorry Charlie Secretary on the Intercom guest. Smith's thanks miss. Tell them to wait. We ordered where did the car we call it in the bank. We of course will get done. Sorry Charlie modern motorcycle. The stock motorbike. Mother won't hold. Yes yes Mississippi. Thanks sweet tell him to wait. We wire the car we ordered the coast. We send up the bank and the telephones blink stocks get sold. The rest of bustle keeps Arnhold. And he's into making movies. He's corporation night. So I play with my wife and kids and I wait to hear them movie bids Meditation in writing. He flies off to California. I discuss him with my shrink. That's the story the way we me and Franklin Shepard Pink I like this okay. That's my guest Lin Manuel Miranda. You're so much fun on that and I really think doing hip hop rhymes is great preparation for that lyric. Absolutely yeah and and Sondheim has written. So many. He's just like the most brilliant lyricist but What are some of the things you feel? You learned either from talking with Sondheim because I know he also give you feedback on Hamilton before you actually put it on stage. So what are things you've learned from actually talking to him just from like getting intimately intimately acquainted with his work. The thing he always sort of stressed was variety variety variety variety variety. When you're dealing with a constant rhythm no matter how great your lyrics are if you don't switch it up? People's heads are going to start bobbing in their stop. Listening to what you're saying so consistently thinly keep the year fresh and keep the audience surprised And you know that was his watchword throughout the writing of Hamilton. This time Song Long. That's closest to comic. Rap is in my opinion not getting married which is done everybody here because if everybody would like to thank you for coming to for the wedding you do mark do more? I'd appreciate your going even more. I mean you must have lots of better things to do. Another word of its Paul. Remember Paul you know the men get America. But I'm not because they've never ruined anyone as wonderful as he is. Thank you all offer gifts and the flowers. Thank you all for showers. Don't tell Paul but I'm not getting married today. Anyone who could do that song has an incredible tongue absolutely so so tricky. It's so fast in the words are so just kind of like dense unfunny and rhyming and So have you thought about that Song Lot in terms of of intricate rhyme schemes. And what human is capable of without totally cooking up. Honestly I think about that song more when people ask me. How did you think rap? WHO's GonNa work on Broadway? Nothing in my so is faster than getting married today company. So I don't know what you're talking about. There's so much precedent for the work in both quote unquote hip hop and not in terms of pattern for the stage. But what's what's amazing about. Getting married today is also in a master class in making lyric easy. There are continents on which you waste air. H There's no h is in that Because if you say her you've lost half off the air in your lungs so it's very Teasing peas thank. You always everybody here. Because if everybody's here I'd like to thank you all for coming to the wedding It's more about breath control than then being a it's not a tongue twister. It's very consciously Nana tongue twister. It's about being able to say it in one continuous breath and getting out of the way and in and choosing words that do not require any extra air or any extra tongue or a jaw work So it's actually not about trying into making it hard. It's about making it easy. So did you learn that intuitively or did sign him. Tell you that that was his intention to stay away from his many ages as possible and to to keep two things that could easily be said. I think I read about that. In a conversation he had at some point But I also knew that intuitively would've leave because of the hip hop artists liked who wrapped fast. You know they're not trying to make something that's hard for them to perform. They're trying to make something. That sounds impressive. Give joy to deliver trying to think of like a really specific early ninety s example Queen Latifah. It's not just that so you broke. It looks more like a fracture. Cats that rap but Latifah where we to crush that's Queen Latifah nineteen ninety two. And it's it's fast there's Queen Latifah's unit is us. There's plenty of people out there triggers ready to pull it. Why are you trying to jump in front of the bullet? Young Lady No Ages. So you learn intuitively that like the writer is trying to make something that flows easily off the tongue. So did the writer of Alexander Hamilton tried to avoid ages. You will observe served. Hamilton is not in any of the fast rapping that happens on stage right. It's George. Washington Goes Hamilton. Jefferson is the one that goes so he knows the doing trying French ingenuity influence in France. I mean so. We're not hampering anyone with Hamilton Lin. Manuel Miranda it's just been wonderful to talk with you. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you so very much. Likewise the joys mind Lin Manuel.

The conversation was this has been incredibly divisive election with A lot of hurt feelings. Disappointment and anger on both sides and the overwhelming sort of statement within that statement is We truly hope you lead all all of us. We're a play that tells the story of our founders with a very diverse company that we feel if you know reflects what our country looks like now and so so it was really intended as an olive branch please lead all of us and I was what I was really grateful for. was that Sunday. Mike Pence really was grateful for that. And I got in the Sentiment which was intended. He said I wasn't offended. I assure you that we are trying to lead all of you and so I was. I was grateful for his statements and for him stopping to listen. You know he didn't have to do that But he did and I thought it felt like a a civil dialogue between us so Hamilton is in part a story sorry about an immigrant and about immigrants and which of course relates to your family background. Your father came to New York from Puerto Areco for college and your mother basically making him not an immigrant because Puerto Rico as a Commonwealth but the experience of Spanish to English and displacement right or symbol. Awesome and your mother. I moved as an infant to The US from Puerto Rico correct and you grew up in a predominantly Latino neighborhood. You went to the Hunter College elementary and high school to have that right. That's right yeah so you you spoke in the past about this. Divide between who. You were At home and in your Latino neighborhood who you were at school with friends. What was the difference between those two us? Oh man I feel like we just stepped into code switch Because that's what I was doing. I think that's the interesting thing I mean. I think if you WANNA make a recipe for making taking a writer Have them feel a little out of place everywhere. have them be an observer kind of all the time and that's a great way to make a writer I wanted the lotto when I got into hunter To get a great Free Public School Education Sorta saved my family and and I was aware of it. I was aware of that. I was at a school with kids who were really smart and I also had friends in the neighborhood Who who went to the local school and I remember feeling that drift happened? You know when you spend your entire day with your closer friends become the ones you go to school with. And yet I'd still have sleepovers with friends from the neighborhood Make movies with my friends in the neighborhood and You know the corner of that I lived in was like this little Latin American country. It's one in which The nanny who lived with us and raised us who also raised my father in Puerto. Rico never alert needed to learn English. All of the business owners in and around our block all spoke Spanish and yet I'd go to school and I'd I'd be at at my friends houses on the upper east side upper west side and I'd be the one translating to the nanny who spoke Spanish So it's interesting to become a Latino. You know cultural ambassador when you're seven so I had that experience as well so you know. We changed depending on the room. We're I'm talking quieter because I'm talking hair grows so you. Obviously you know love rap and hip hop what were the first recordings that made a big impression. I rap recordings that made a big impression on you I've several I remember. My sister bringing home the fat boys when I was really little and also taking me. Due to the first hip hop movies I remember going to see beat street in going to see breaking as a really little kid being sort of dragged along by my older sister. My sister is responsible possible for anyone for giving me good taste in music I remember stealing her. Copy of black sheep's a wolf and sheep's clothing and learning Engine I and not on the New York transit line I think that's probably the first rap song I really worked hard to memorize in sixth grade. But then also You Know Naughty by nature and Queen Latifah the music. You love when you're a teenager is always going to be the most important to you And I I find that it's it's all over the score of Hamilton The quotes are big quotes They're big PUN. These are all New York East Coast Nineties rappers. And that's when I was a teenager so I'm GonNa put you on the spot and ask you do. I rhymes that you remember writing that you still remember today. Well Hello My name is Lynn but if you're dyslexic call me nil. My rhymes are GONNA kill. So I suggest you write your will. Then leave your to me. I am the pit to me. A coolness can't be ripped to me because they will be hitting the Mike Tonight notice. My voice went up two octaves. It's because at that time I was listening to nothing but the far side died and my favorite rapper in the far side had that well there she goes again. The don't misty Theo Paean and now the world around me it was. It was that cadence and and I think my rapper. Voices still influenced by far side But that that is Those lines were a rhyme. I wrote in ninth grade that I showed to friends wins and there were like all right. Stick to your day job. Come on. That was pretty good. That's funny so your father has had a political consulting company. He worked with of New York City. Mayor Ed Koch. He still has it and advising him on Latino Affairs and you apparently wrote Jingles when you were younger for this political consulting and company that your father owns. How old were you when you started writing them and please sing one for us? Well jingles misleading. Because it sounds like oh how are we to wake up in the morning morning. It's not they're not like I like they. Its background music for commercials. I was basically cheap labor for my dad. He would say I need thirty seconds of of some jazz for a sharpton spot that's going to be on. WB L. S.. or I need some bright salsa for a Fernando Ferrer campaign commercial you know I wrote music for for Eliot Spitzer before. We knew what we knew when he was running for Governor and whatever Democrat was running or my dad was working with I was writing the campaign music. I liked writing the negative ads. More than because it's more minor chords. You just hit the synthesizer politician ex. They voted against and ends with Bright Salsa Don Don Don Don Don vote politician. Why so you know who you're talking about the compartmentalized department allies you? The you were you were when you were at home. And Latino neighborhood in the you were at school when your friends were white and Latino and then you learn finally to bring all those parts together with the same kind of compartmentalization happening for you musically you loved Broadway shows and you loved hip talk and it's maybe hard to find people who win when their teens love both. Yeah I mean absolutely and honestly what a fantastic antastic question because theater is really the thing that began to break that. Divide for me my senior year in high school. I was the director of the school musical and I picked West side story painfully aware that there were not enough. Let the kids to play all the sharks and was at hunter or at least audition and so what that became for me was actually this kind of weird way of bringing my culture to school. I remember being knocked doubt When I first saw the movie and sixth grade that there's actually a musical number in the Canon about whether you should stay in Puerto Rico and live in the United States? Oh Yeah You know that's amazing when you're twelve and you grow up in New York and your family's all from this other island to have that conversation happening in front of you in an iconic chronic musical And so I had my white and Asian Sharks and I brought my dad and he did dialect coaching. You know while they're singing in America I want the things. They're yelling while they're cheering each other. On to be accurate. I want the accents to be accurate. Our guest is Lin.
