Grease: Live took over TV last night, and critics quickly labeled the live musical a smash hit. As often happens with TV spectacles, Twitter was also abuzz with constant commentary on every musical number.
But the MVP of Grease: Live tweeting (who’s also an MVP of Twitter in general) was Hamilton composer Lin-Manuel Miranda. He praised just about every aspect of the production—no surprise, since he’s friends with many of the cast members, and Hamilton director Thomas Kail also directed Grease: Live.
Mr. Miranda’s best running joke of the night, however, was that Grease, with its emotional songs and somewhat suggestive dances, was actually getting him pregnant. What could’ve been a stupid one-joke premise was gold in his hands:
Lucky for us that he spreads the love to other musicals as well—and that he’s so open about his childbearing process.
