How Was Your Week: Episode 133
“Chive Teef”: Lin-Manuel Miranda
Hello, Hello! This week’s episode of HWYW features IN THE HEIGHTS star and creator LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA, who joins us to discuss the process of writing the opening musical number from this year’s Tony Awards with Neil Patrick Harris, whether Eminem or Sondheim is gayer, and how Antonio Banderas interpreted the Phantom of the Opera vocally.
Also: ruminations about the changing seasons, an unusual way to unwind after this week’s episode of BREAKING BAD, things we didn’t ask Julie Chen about her face full of secrets, and the thing that guy who designs food animals for CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 tells his friends.
A good show. A FINE show.

When Lin-Manuel Miranda isn’t working on Broadway or tending to his loyal Twitter following, he’s performing with Freestyle Love Supreme. The improv rap group has toured the country with their unique act, in which the performers take cues from the audience and turn them into full-scale musical numbers on the spot. Next stop: Joe’s Pub where they will play two concerts on May 29. In addition to Miranda, the concert (helmed by In the Heights collaborator Thomas Kail) will feature Christopher Jackson, Anthony Veneziale, Arthur Lewis and Chris Sullivan. Below, the Tony-winning composer opens up about his musical influences, the surprising leading men he’d like to duet with and his perennial summer jam.
