Part of a record 16 nominations for Hamilton, Diggs dual-starring role has rightfully brought him attention from names as mighty as Obama and Beyonce, and he was recently featured in Time Magazine. We’re certainly pulling for Diggs, even if partly so we can one day say, “we had a Tony Award winning actor do a sit-down interview on our Newtown Radio show.”
