"Oh my God! What is Lin-Manuel Miranda going to do now?" His "10 Dollar Founding Father" lyric is in jeopardy, right?
Like the coolest guy that he is, he wittily Tweeted about it, with his usual smart and sharp sense of humor. (ICYMI: Read HERE!)
Then, being the complete theater nerd that I proudly am, my thoughts immediately went to this:
"What Broadway diva should replace Alex on the sawbuck?" (You know you did, too...) I figure that she has to be American and already dead. Sorry, Audra... (but she'd look great, right?) Sorry, Idina... (on the plus side, we already know what she looks like green!) Sorry, Angela (not completely American, but certainly worthy!)...
So, how about Mary Martin? Lorraine Hansberry? Ethel Barrymore? All three are certainly historically-significant...
Finally, I must give full disclosure: My actual first though was, "Damn! Could this news makes Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson somehow less significant?" You can guess how often I have a $10 bill in my hands.
