If you could share a bottle of wine with any celebrity (whether politician, artist, Oscar-winner or reality TV star…! Anything goes!) who would it be, why and what would you talk about?
I guess I’ll go first, as it’s only polite: for me currently it would be Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer of the hit musical Hamilton, as well as lots of other cool musical things like In The Heights and the Disney film Moana.
Purely because I think he’s a genius, and I’d love to talk about how he created Hamilton, because it’s such a masterpiece of theatre, IMO! Exceptionally clever lyrics and concept, and so different to anything else musical theatre has ever seen (musical theatre nut, here!) He’s also a keen activist, raising tons of money for charity (most recently for victims of the hurricane in Puerto Rico), and one of the most widely read people in showbiz so he’d have plenty of fascinating things to talk about. All in all a very fascinating writer and interesting bloke!
Which wine… is this a bit too obvious?
Over to you …
