If you couldn't relate to "Hamilton," might I suggest "Millennials: The Musical"?
I'm not saying "Hamilton" isn't relatable, it's just a lot of it speaks to a very specific kind of person.
The themes of struggle, making a name for yourself and not getting carried away in petty arguments are all there, and we can associate with them, but the story itself can often feel out of reach.
You know anyone who died in a duel lately or led troops against the British with his French best friend? Yeah, me neither.
Thankfully, Lin-Manuel Miranda and The Rock saw this problem and created a musical to speak to a more modern generation.
It's called "Millennials: The Musical" because, honestly, what else would you call it?
I got a chance to talk to cast member, YouTube ICON Meg DeAngelis (AKA MayBaby), about her role in the play and how she relates to the subject matter.
Do you see yourself as a Millennial?
Is there a part of the musical you really relate to?
Are you a big dating app person?
In a bad way?
Like, normal style?
If you had to delete all your apps and keep one what would it be?
“Millennials” is produced by Seven Bucks Digital Studio, a digital arm of Seven Bucks Productions co-founded by The Rock and longtime manager Dany Garcia, who tapped Lin-Manuel Miranda to play a parody role of producer for the video.
