"That would be dope if . . ."

Matthew Downing and Seth Stewart delve into the creation process. Seth shares the need for space, finding a passion, and doing.  So often we get caught in our own heads, don't know what we want, or spend a majority of our time consuming. Those issues serve as major roadblocks towards creating beautiful art.

Seth tells some interesting stories from Hamilton like how he went about practicing Lafayette's quick hitting lines.  The conversation concludes by contemplating the roles of teachers and some of the best teaching methods.

Seth Stewart played Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton, as well as originating the role of Graffiti Pete in Miranda’s In The Heights.  Seth also has numerous film credits to his name such as Karma Club and Sex and the City. Seth has a passion for writing and creating characters that possess great depth. When he’s not doing that - he’s probably listening to hip hop, watching a superhero movie, or trying to save the planet!  Check out
