Schwartz and Miranda Musical?#1
Posted: 6/8/08 at 11:56am
I was watching NY1 last week and Lin-Manuel Miranda was being interviewed. He mentioned that he was planning on working with Stephen Schwartz on a musical. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this.

Actually, the Variety article has a brief mention about the songs themselves-

Work on "Working" began in earnest about a year ago. "We started talking about a composer who would add another flavor, something contemporary and something Latino," Greenberg says. With that in mind, Schwartz asked Miranda to participate.

The composer-lyricist contributes two new tunes, a song about a man who works at McDonald's (based on his own first job at an Upper West Side Mickey D's) and another about immigrant senior-care workers.

"It's a job no one else wants to do," Miranda says. "Those are basically the jobs immigrants do in America. That's how we start."

Lin sang a few snippets from one of the songs in an interview. I think it was the Playbill Radio interview after the Tony nominations. I remember hearing him sings parts of a song, and it was all about hamburgers.
