Friday favorites: Daveed Diggs

This one is for Laura, who introduced me to Daveed Diggs by way of the Hamilton soundtrack. We saw him in the show last year, and afterwards we waited at the stage door. Finally he came out, along with some other cast members. Laura passed her Playbill up to the front for him to sign, and as he did so, she shouted, “Thank you!” Daveed looked up and said, “Of course!”

That became our mantra for the rest of her senior year:

No matter what happens (mean girls, mono, heartbreak), remember that Daveed Diggs said “Of course!” to you!

Go listen to the Hamilton soundtrack. He’s amazing.

And doesn’t this poster make you want to read a book?
