This. And, with Ron Howard and Brian Grazer producing Lin's passion project, it now gives them leverage if they have a project that they really want him involved in. And who knows, maybe it will a) be successful, b) get awards attention, or c) both.

TTB is an odd choice for a movie, it's such an offbeat show and the plot is, well, thin. Sometimes non existent.

That being said, I'm happy it's being directed by someone who clearly adores it, who has played the role before, and who has a documented success making things work when they really shouldn't. 

I'm a big fan of TTB so colour me intrigued.

I'm a bit skeptical of letting Lin-Manuel Miranda direct this. Nothing against the guy (I think he is very talented and charming) but he doesn't have any directorial experience. I feel like Hollywood is using this guy as much as possible because he's hot right now and teens adore him. And just because somethings are popular and work with theater, doesn't mean it translate into a good movie.

 Netflix released a bunch of clips today for their new movies in 2021, and even though it is literally one second long (37 seconds into it), just wanted to share it for those interested.

Can Andrew Garfield sing? This could be interesting. I like Garfield and Bradley Whitford.

I love the entire cast, and Andrew can carry a tune but he is not on pare with the rest of the cast in terms of singing which includes Vanessa Hudgens, Joshua Henry, Robin De Jesus and Alexandra Shipp. They needed a name for the movie to even get off the ground since it won't have a massive audience, so Andrew was picked.

Is this a case where the lead role isn’t too vocally demanding then?

Well....Lin has done the role. Not that I thought he was good at it. I guess it's not that demanding vocally, although I love the recording with Raul Esparza.

What's the source for your statement about why Andrew Garfield was cast?  Did Lin call you with the news or are you just running your mouth?

Raul is such a powerhouse singer and to my ears does not feel under-utilised singing the score. But if Lin could pull it off fine I will take others' word for it that it can work with a lesser voice. TBH it seems to be the rule rather than exception for filmed musicals to have weaker voices than stage counterparts so I for one I am kind of used to it. 

"Rose in Gypsy was like going through therapy for me. Playing Rose helped me put a lot of emotions to bed. There was so much lacking in Rose and that's why she had to prove herself through her children. [interviewer]In ways that reminded you of your mom?[/interviewer]. Let's just say the role was very interesting for me. That one was the most interesting [I've ever played]" - Bernadette Peters (2018)
