Last night in the CFA Hall, Lin-Manuel Miranda ’02 spoke about the origin of his Tony-award-winning 2008 musical In the Heights and other creative endeavors. The talk, entitled “When You’re Home: A Look Back on the Origins of In the Heights” and sponsored by the Theater Department and CFA, spanned everything from a musical performed in the Westco Café, Seven Minutes in Heaven–a 20 minute show about thirteen year olds attending their first unchaperoned party–to writing for the Tony’s to Like Water for Chocolate-inspired creative advice.
From the super cheery Maggie Feldman-Piltch ’14:
Do you often find yourself breaking out into spontaneous dance solos? Do you love Wesleyan? Are you a dancer, figure skater, cheerleader, or gymnast who misses dancing, figure skating, cheerleading, and/or gymnastics? Do you wish you were one of the above mentioned nouns?
If you answered “YES!” to any of these questions, then this event is for you!
