News: Lin-Manuel Miranda will be guest-star in Brooklyn Nine-Nine

[ Written on February 12 2019 by Francesca ]

Lin-Manuel Miranda landed a role in one of his favourite TV show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. On Thursday, March 7, NBC will air the episode “The Golden Child,” in which will play David Santiago, brother of Amy (Melissa Fumero) and her rival.
Head to our Gallery for a first look at David.

TVLine: This is the precinct where it’s about to happen: Brooklyn Nine-Nine has cast self-proclaimed super fan Lin-Manuel Miranda to guest-star in an upcoming Season 6 episode, TVLine has learned.

Miranda is set to play David Santiago, Amy’s brother and rival. He’ll appear in Episode 9, “The Golden Child,” which is set to air on Thursday, March 7 (NBC, 9/8c).

The Hamilton creator was one of a handful of famous folk — also including Seth Meyers, Mark Hamill, Sean Astin and director Guillermo Del Toro — who voiced their support for Brooklyn Nine-Nine following its cancellation at Fox. Less than 48 hours after it was saved by NBC, Miranda celebrated with the cast at the network’s annual Upfronts dinner. Then in December, Miranda and Meyers toasted B99‘s second life on Late Night.

Back in May, series co-creator Dan Goor told TVLine that the hope was to have Miranda and the other “Guardians of the Nine-Nine” appear during Season 6. “It would be a dream to have all of them, let alone even one of them,” he said.

News: Lin-Manuel Miranda to Lead One-Night ‘Camelot’ Benefit Concert

[ Written on February 01 2019 by Francesca ]

Lin-Manuel Miranda will be on the stage of the Lincoln Center Theater again, for a benefit concert, as King Arthur in a one-night-only performance of “Camelot” on March 4 at 6:30PM.

The New York Times: Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to be king for a day.

The acclaimed creator of “Hamilton” has agreed to lead a one-night concert performance of “Camelot” to benefit Lincoln Center Theater, the nonprofit’s leadership said Thursday.

Mr. Miranda will play the legendary King Arthur in the concert — a role originally played on Broadway by Richard Burton and on film by Richard Harris.

The best seats will cost a pretty penny: Benefit tickets, which include dinner with the cast, start at $2,500, and are available now. Starting Feb. 19 there will also be performance-only tickets available, for $95 and $195, as well as online lottery seats for $30.

The beneficiary, Lincoln Center Theater, is one of the city’s most prestigious nonprofits, presenting work in its Broadway house (the Vivian Beaumont) as well as Off Broadway.

The “Camelot” concert, which will be staged without costumes or sets, will take place on March 4, and will be directed by Bartlett Sher, whose productions at Lincoln Center Theater include the currently running “My Fair Lady” revival, as well as “South Pacific,” for which he won a Tony Award. The concert will feature a 30-piece orchestra.

The rest of the cast will include Solea Pfeiffer as Guenevere, Jordan Donica as Sir Lancelot, Dakin Matthews as Merlyn, Ruthie Ann Miles as Nimue, Ethan Slater as Mordred, Julie White as Morgan Le Fey, and Jenn Colella, Jason Danieley and Bonnie Milligan as three of the Knights of the Round Table.

“Camelot,” which features music by Frederick Loewe and book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, first opened on Broadway in 1960; the film adaptation was in 1967. (Fun fact: The “Camelot” composers also wrote “My Fair Lady,” and this “Camelot” concert will take place on the stage where “My Fair Lady” is now running.)

Mr. Miranda won the Pulitzer Prize and two Tony Awards for writing “Hamilton,” and just finished leading the cast of a touring production of that show in San Juan, P.R. He is now co-producing, and expected occasionally to appear in, a Greenwich House Theater run by Freestyle Love Supreme, a hip-hop improv group he co-founded (and which, in 2014, had a brief run at Lincoln Center Theater).

He has described himself as a childhood fan of “Camelot,” which he knows from the cast album and has said is his mother’s favorite score. (It even gets a shout-out in “Hamilton” when Lafayette, who refers to himself as “the Lancelot of the revolutionary set,” says, “Who’s the best? C’est moi!” — a reference to a song sung by Lancelot in “Camelot.”)

“I’ve never seen a production of ‘Camelot’,” Mr. Miranda once told Time Out Chicago, “but I can tell you the version in my head, and it’s incredible.”
