The Only April Fools’ Prank Worthy of Your Time Is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s The Room Broadway ‘Adaptation’

Well, this certainly gives new meaning to The Room where it happens. (Do whatever it takes to get his adaptation on the Richard Rogers Theater floor, hey!) For a few glorious minutes before admitting it was an April Fools’ prank, Lin-Manuel Miranda announced plans for his next big musical extravaganza: Tommy Wiseau’s The Room on Broadway! Theater Mania got the “exclusive” on Miranda’s newest thespian outing — “this is all very premature,” he jokingly tweeted — which featured a remarkable cast including Mark Rylance, Patti Lupone, Javier Muñoz, and Miranda himself. Also, there are songs!
