Lin-Manuel Miranda took the theater world by storm with his R&B look at Alexander Hamilton in his play ‘Hamilton’. As accomplished as he is, he can still nerd out at other musicals.
In this clip from the 25th anniversary of the Disney classic ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Disney gathered some hit musicians including EGOT winner Robert Lopez and wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Stephen Schwartz, and Lin-Manuel Miranda to have a chat with the composer of the songs of ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Alan Menken. The musicians had a chance to get some behind the music stories with Alan and ask him some questions. Lin-Manuel took this opportunity to tell Alan how much he loved the opening number and specifically his favorite lyric in the song, you’ll see why in the above clip.
The Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray/DVD releases on September 20, 2016.
