Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “new musical” sounds like a horror movie.
GQ teamed up with the brain behind Broadway sensation “Hamilton” to bring to light the ridiculousness that is Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. The Puerto Rican genius rode around New York City in a double decker bus and sang the GOP’s frontrunner’s most ridiculous tweets. And because this is Trump we’re talking about, Lin-Manuel Miranda had a lot of source material to draw from. Like that time Trump wished everyone a good day on this “special day, September 11th.” The video ends on a very solemn and totally terrifying note that the U.S. might have to endure a Trump musical on November 8 if we don’t get out and vote. Who wants that? *crickets* Precisely.
But that’s not all of the Miranda news today. The trailer for “Hamilton’s America” is also out!
In case you didn’t know, the musical “Hamilton” is all about immigrants contributing to the founding of this wonderful country. The PBS documentary will take you behind the scenes of “Hamilton.”As the Puerto Rican native said in a commencement speech at the University of Pennsylvania:
“In a year when politicians traffic in anti-immigrant rhetoric, there is also a Broadway musical reminding us that a broke, orphan immigrant from the West Indies built our financial system. A story that reminds us that since the beginning of the great, unfinished symphony that is our American experiment, time and time again, immigrants get the job done.”
