In Art We Can Be Fucking Nuts

Atlin Merrick

Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote, scored, and starred in 'Hamilton' on Broadway.

"I find that, for me, the work is a safe place to put all the stuff you don't want to put in your real life. I don't want to be a crazy, manic asshole. I don't want to have an affair. I don't want to have a fucking gunfight. But!
 
"There's a part of your brain that wants to experience everything, and so work's a safe place to explore it all. Both in the writing and in the performing.
 
"I get to write about an affair. I get to have the guilt and the feeling of that without having to fuck my life up. [laughs] Art is the place to safely explore all those other sides of you, because the side you want to bring home is the side that wants to be a good father and be a good husband and be a good son. In art we can be fucking nuts." — Lin-Manuel Miranda, interviewed in GQ
