Best Of: Anthony Ramos / Renée Elise Goldsberry

Saturday, 26 June

Anthony Ramos says Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical 'In the Heights' filled him with hope about a life on the stage: "I felt like I'm watching my cousins and my aunts and uncles on the stage ... like friends that I grew up with. And these people are speaking vernacular that's familiar to me." Now he's starring — and singing and dancing and rapping — in the film adaptation. We also talk about his roles in 'Hamilton' and his childhood.

Justin Chang reviews 'Luca' and 'Undine.'

The comedy series 'Girls5Eva,' which was just renewed for a second season, follows a 1990s band that reunites after a long stretch of obscurity. Renée Elise Goldsberry was once in a girl group herself. She spoke with Ann Marie Baldonado about women being pitted against each other in showbiz and her show-stopping song "Satisfied" in 'Hamilton.'
