Tracie Thoms, who portrayed Joanne in the 2005 film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning musical, got in on the fun, noting that Miranda’s responses were “pretty amazing.” Without skipping a beat, Miranda replied with a line of Joanne’s from “Take Me or Leave Me:” “I hate mess but I looove you.”

Oh, that was fun!(every lyric is still in my brain the database is intact)Love you, love Rent, have a lovely afternoon! Go! The answer, for Lin-Manuel Miranda today (for you, tomorrow for me), is   Rent   lyrics. — Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) August 31, 2017

His responses ranged from logical — Q: “Best part of performing live?” A: “Glory beyond the cheap colored lights” — to the absurd —Q: “What’s your favorite food?” A:”Meatless balls, it tastes the same (if you close your eyes).” Some were oddly lyrical and metaphorically perfect: Q: “What’s your biggest fear?” A: “One song before I go.”
In some cases, he merely completed lyrical refrains tee’d up for him, For instance, Q: “How did we get here? Okay I'll take some questionsbut only answer in Rent quotes?
