The performance is truly wonderful - you will be thrilled by the video available for $5 (well worth it!) on the This American Life web site. Tightly choreographed and fast paced, you will hang on every twist in this heart wrenching story. But best of all, the moves, timing, lyrical singing, and emotion of Anthony Ramos are simply stunning. I can't wait to see what young Ramos does next.

CAUTION: Be very careful! I cannot get these songs out of my head. It is beginning to be a problem as I'm having trouble focusing on anything else. Listen at your own risk.

This mini-musical from NPR's This American Life is great. I heard it the other day and had to buy this album immediately. This is just Lin Manuel Miranda doing what he does best, making great music. The 5 songs tell the story of a piece that TAL had a while back about a cop that goes undercover at a high school to stop drug deals in schools. If you havent heard that piece you really have nothing to worry about. You wont feel lost as LMM takes the main points of this story and turns them beautifully and hilariously into this short musical.
If you loved In The Heights, you will love this as well.

If you're a diehard fan of This American Life like I am, you already know this is is amazing... but if you're not, you need to be. This American Life is the most poignant current program of any medium, and is not to be missed. We all have an hour a week to have our mind expanded, our hearts warmed, and our spirits lifted.

Anyway... This American Life, episode 486: Valentine's Day. Act 2 is a story aptly called 21 Chump Street. It was a great story that stuck with me, as I am sure it did with most listeners. Evidently it stuck with This American Life and In the Heights Writer and Composer Lin Manuel Miranda.

This fantastic musical adaption of the radio story reported by Robbie Brown, brought to life by Manuel himself, Lindsay Mendez who made her mark as Elphaba in Broadway's Wicked, and a stellar cast of Broadway regulars including Anthony Ramos, was performed at BAM in Brooklyn for a live streamed TAL event in movie theatres!

Ira Glass: Modern American storytrelling does not get any better than this.
Broadway musicals: Stylized, moving storytelling.
Lin-Manuel Miranda: A brilliant fresh voice bringing Broadway into the 21st century.

Put these things together and you get a perfect storm of storytelling magic.

Ever since I heard this on "This American Life" I couldn't get the songs out of my head. The songs are extremely catchy and offer something a bit different from the radio recording. Even though it is only five songs it is well worth it to be able to listen to the individual songs.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is one of the great composers and lyricists of our time, it is definitely worth it to see/hear this short work from him. This musical makes you laugh hysterically and tear up all in the span of 15 minutes. I never realized a 15 minute musical could be so wonderful and powerful. I highly recommend purchasing the video This American Life: Live at Bam, so that you may see the wonderful actors perform this piece, it is even funnier when you see it performed. I have watched it 3 times now, and it makes me crack up every time. It also will make you think and question police work in this day and age. Couldn’t recommend it more.

I had found the original This American Life reporting on the story this musical is based on to be really affecting - so wondered what it would be like as a musical - - answer? REALLY good. Maybe even more strong. The high school senior's youth and love come across so strong. I hope wherever that young man is he knows he has a lot of people sympathizing with him and wishing him well. This is a great, great musical in 14 minutes - amazing! Get it and listen in!

Lin-Manuel Miranda (In The Heights) does it again in this mini-musical for public radio giant, This American Life. Educational and interesting with a lot of heart.
