Nicole Kidman and Amy Adams

Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda

This special half-hour episode features Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns), both of whom are bringing musicals back to the big screen. Join Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda as they talk about navigating the differences of film performance versus live concert and theatre performances; removing one’s armor in front of the camera and finding a new source of adrenaline when a live audience isn’t present in the equation. Listen to Lady Gaga speak about her lifelong dream of becoming an actress even before becoming a multi-awarded musician and icon. Hear why Lin-Manuel first got into writing musicals.
