"In two thousand fifteen lin-manuel Miranda's Hamilton premiered on Broadway, since then it's been the musical to see if you can get a ticket that is and this week the musical is adding another US city to its schedule son, Juan Puerto Rico. There's a lot riding on the production for me down the who's returning to the title role during the show's two week run. Both of his parents are from the island and in the wake of hurricane Maria. He's used to celebrity to raise awareness and funds for recovery. Efforts in Puerto Rico, the production is also part of a fifteen million dollar fundraising effort that's intended to benefit arts institutions on the island. But there's controversy originally Hamilton was scheduled to be performed at the university of Puerto Rico. But last month, the show's producers, moved it off the campus, you're having this production, and so- theater students film students think that they're going to be able to access the university that you'll be about to enter to the theater actually happens is that they feel that they can that Sylvia. Befell a playwright and assistant professor in the theater department at the university of Puerto Rico reopen address ahead of Hamilton's Friday premiere on the island. I spoke with Sylvia and Lowell feet. A theater critic and former professor at the university of Puerto Rico GOP Russ, and they joined me from San Juan the principal reaction against bringing Hamilton here really goes back to the pro Mesa law and the support that was given that for Mesa law by Manuel Miranda he supported the law that established the junta a fiscal control that currently controls. The finances of Puerto Rico and is currently doing great harm to the university of Puerto Rico by taking away the large portion of his operating budget lemon. Wells father is also very involved in the Democratic Party. Right. So there's we should be transparent about that as well. I think it's very important to understand that still Puerto Ricans are still in the aftermath of media and students are still struggling with that a lot of things have happened are having to electrical grid is being privatized health system, of course, privatized three hundred schools have been closed down on they want to implement charter schools in that the university of Puerto Rico is the foremost teaching centre has received severe cuts, and this has affected life of students tuition has been raised. There's basically no tenure track positions. Adjunct professors are living in very precarious ways workers. And so when Hamilton comes they want to invest in and we have to say that has repaired the theater after the hurricane investment of the play is going to go to local theater companies. But I think what started to happen was at the play which was sold out immediately. Which of course, there's going to be a lottery like there's another cases for the students are starting to feel. How there's a play that's in minority. But I can't go see it. So it starts to feel like their own theatre VIP. I mean, are they making some effort to get people on the island to see it? It seems like they are do they have to make more of an effort. I think a greater effort should have been made. Because the question really does arise who gets to see this play. And how do they get to see the play because in this moment to people here? One ex-professor the university of Puerto Rico who has been writing the reviews of theater for the last forty years, and you have one of the most important young playwrights from Puerto Rico, and we don't have tickets to the play. So so that becomes an issue. The issue then is is is another thing that in fact, we do have a play that suddenly even though in a very multicultural context it celebrates the founding of the United States, but doesn't necessarily include for Puerto Ricans people who are on the margins of the US society, or who in fact may not want to be on the margins at all may want to be in fact, the outside that influenced. So suddenly, you're you're. You're you're caught in a political dilemma, what does that particular story mean for the Puerto Rican off audience fill Lowell, and I want to ask you, and and Sylvia this question is there a little bit too, much expectation and pressure being put on one show one man, one performance or a series of performances right now is it fair to sort of put all of these issues that we're talking about on the shoulders of either Hamilton or lin-manuel. This arises are really good questions. I think it's not putting responsibility exactly on the monarchy. But it's, but it's putting responsibility on what does it mean? If you go to the university of Puerto Rico and the students who have been fighting for three years warm because this this strike has haven't since two eleven that we can even go back to other strikes. Suddenly feel that the theater, you know, they can't enter as I said Utah VIP theater that they can't enter that. Somehow it's like putting again Amir to the face of other situations where they feel. That the island is going through the same situation. So it kind of triggers kind of triggers again, a bigger picture bigger problem. And the thing about the university theatre he goes, I think it should be a venue for international plays for logo plays, which is also at issue right now because local place cannot perform there because it's so expensive right now. So sometimes local place can only have runs for one or two shows, but it should be a place that that can be a venue for renown artists in the United States in Europe and Latin America, and that also local theatre artists can also present there. I'm wondering also if you could give us a sense either one of you of. How lin-manuel is viewed on the island by Puerto Ricans on the island? We here in New York, especially new year Ricans if you will or a lot of Puerto Ricans here, I think we see this as a success story. I have seen Hamilton it took years to be able to get in and see it. But his legacy his when I say him. I mean, Louis lemon whalemeat Honda. I think is largely one that's seen as a positive one here in New York City in particular among Puerto Ricans what about on the island. I really I mean, it it. It's a difficult question to respond to the obviously the one of the reasons so many people want to see the play is because it's this great success. That was created by a Puerto Rican artist that's obvious in terms of the reaction here. People have to be proud of that fact, but it's a double perspective, I think from everybody's point of view because that's taking place in New York. What happens when suddenly it comes back here? I think there's a different kind of reaction. It's it's a it's a kind of what are you going to do with it here? That's the difficulty of what's happening right now. I think because the one can say that even though the they Manuel comes to Puerto Rico the particularly now after Muttiah with more frequency before that the his contact with Puerto Rico and his knowledge of the social cultural political situation of Puerto Rico seems to be from my point of. View. Probably does not have the the profundity that that it might it might have. And that particular seems to be true about his understanding of the situation of the university of Puerto Rico and just exactly the crisis at the university of Puerto Rico is facing right now and how a show like Hamilton can in fact, enter into the university of Puerto Rico and help face that crisis situation of feet is a theater critic and a former professor at the university of Puerto Rico Peres, thanks so much Lowell.
