Dwayne and Lin-Manuel are super busy to begin with and somehow managed to find the time to write, create and release a new online musical called Millenials: The Musical. Why would they do this? How did they find the time? When do they sleep?
Don’t know the answer to any of these questions, but I can tell you I loved Millenials: The Musical. Coming in just under 15 minutes, the online musical follows 22 year-old New Yorker Crystal, who has tragically lost her phone. She didn’t lose it in a tragic ways, it’s just tragic that she lost it.
Crystal enlists the help of her very unplugged, very hunky next door neighbor Jack, and the two make their way through a night filled with every Millenial reference that can fit into 15 minutes on the internet. There’s start ups, artisanal items (things you would normally buy, but it costs a lot more), dating apps, Soul Cycle, dabbing, drugs, and selfies. Of course there’s selfies.
Millenials: The Musical is a love story about life in 2016, with the moral of the story centering about balancing social media and existing in real life. Do you find your teenager or son or daughter has a good balance between social media and real life? Or do they constantly live life through others on Instagram? What have you told them to help them live in the moment more often?
