After working alongside each other for the newly released Disney film Moana, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Lin-Manuel Miranda seem to be a match made in heaven. The pair teamed up to helm a production titled Millennials: The Musical and in a mockumentary released on Tues. (Nov. 22), the actors discussed how they turned a "140 character" pitch into a full-on Broadway production.
"Theater is a beautiful, living, breathing thing. To tread the boards is a beauty and a blessing," Miranda said in the beginning of the video. The Rock followed up saying, "As long as you don't f--k it up."
The concept behind Millennials: The Musical was birthed from a Twitter direct message from Michael Palomar, the writer of the musical, and despite their busy schedule, the two actors decided to pursue the project.
