There was some great footage from the show and interviews too. It was interesting to see how it all started with one song— and how the musical built momentum. It became something Lin-Manuel Miranda had to write.
I couldn’t get enough of the show clips. They also showed us Lin-Manuel in the composing stage of My Shot. As he was envisioning the scene, we were shown the intense creative process that goes into his work. I loved seeing how he pieced together his ideas, leaving himself open to inspiration, and then how it all came together on stage.
One of my favorite moments was the conversation between Lin-Manuel Miranda, Stephen Sondheim, and John Weidman about research, artistic expression, and collaboration. We also got a peak of Lin-Manuel working “Cabinet Meetings” with his composing team.
What’s next besides playing this documentary and the sound track repeatedly? I must get tickets to this show!
