Man Crush Monday: Lin-Manuel Miranda

All summer I have been listening to one album, and I believe that a lot of other people are with me when I say that I am obsessed with the ‘Hamilton’ soundtrack. My god, it is absolute perfection and even though the show is sold out until 2018 or whatever, I will listen to it on repeat until I can see it live. In my opinion it is revolutionary, and who is behind it? This man right here, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the entire script after reading a book about Alexander Hamilton.

Lin-Manuel stepped down as the lead in ‘Hamilton’ over the summer but I am absolutely positive that we will be seeing a lot more of him in the future.

Lin-Manuel is of course extremely handsome, but it is more than that with him. He is brilliant. That simple. Anyone who can put together an entire play, movie, musical, write an entire album, in my opinion is brilliant.

For the record, he is also really funny on Twitter which you have to appreciate and seems to always respond to fans. The best was when he put together songs from Les Mis and Jay-Z, I can see that being an interesting play!

Happy Monday and if you haven’t listened to the ‘Hamilton’ soundtrack, go and do it!

Who Should’ve Replaced Lin-Manuel Miranda In ‘Hamilton’

So the creative genius that is Lin-Manuel is leaving the Broadway hit ‘Hamilton’ to probably go and write another absolute Broadway smash. It’s obvious that this show will be around for a long time and he probably doesn’t want to be completely tied down, which is understandable.

It has been announced that his replacement will be his understudy, Javier Munoz.  Munoz will officially start on July 11th as the title character.

Now, I am glad that the understudy is able to make it to the stage but there are a few people that I would have loved to see take the stage as Lin-Manuel’s replacement, at least for a short period of time.

Taye Diggs

Taye Diggs can sing, really well. He was in ‘Rent’, he was also in ‘Hedwig’, both on Broadway. He has the resume and he isn’t so bad to look at.

Donald Glover

Whether you call him Donald or Childish Gambino, I think that we can all agree that he is by far one of the most talented men in the business. He can rap, he can act, and he is so damn humble about it.


Personally, I know that Drake is a good actor. He was great on Degrassi and he can rap. He could pull off ‘Hamilton’ for sure. Drake also has zero street credit, so he could be on Broadway no issue.

Justin Timberlake

JT because, why not? I mean he can sing, he can dance, and he is one of the best entertainers of our time. He will absolutely go down at one of the best. Truthfully I am surprised he hasn’t really shown a serious interest in theater yet.

J. Cole

J.Cole would absolutely be my first choice to take over the spot for Lin-Manuel, I highly doubt that he would do it. J. Cole is a serious rapper and I couldn’t imagine him on a Broadway stage wearing tights, but I think it would be awesome. Everything that J does, he puts his heart and soul into. That would absolutely be my dream.

Who did you hope would take Lin-Manuel’s place?
