Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Here to Teach Us Broadway Slang

December 13, 2018

Even if you’re a full-fledged Broadway baby, you’ll learn a thing or two from LMM.

How can you tell if your relationship is real, or a mere showmance? What are you supposed to do when someone barks, “Thank you, 5!” in your face? And— perhaps most importantly—what is YOUR money note? Hamilton creator/Mary Poppins Returns star/all-around genius Lin-Manuel Miranda is here with the answers to these and other Broadway-vocabulary questions we didn’t even know we had.

Vanity Fair
had Miranda rapid-fire translate tons of musical-theater slang both familiar and obscure for their YouTube series that we’re calling “Celebrity X Teaches You Y Slang.” Clever, we know. We’d spill more fun details of the 5-minute vid, but there’d be some serious spoilers. You’ll just have to watch for yourself—and let us know your favorite Great White Way-specific term in the comments!
