Nicolette Hart

During LGBT Pride Month, host Robert Hammond is pleased to welcome Rochester native Nicolette Hart to Stage Notes.

Lin-Manuel Miranda won the award for Best Score for Hamilton, and in lieu of a traditional speech, he delivered a poem about love for his wife and the need for love in the wake of tragedy, no doubt responding to the horrific mass shooting in Orlando. By the end, he was in tears, and the crowd was cheering. Following is the transcript:

"My wife's the reason anything gets done. She nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one. Our son is her most beautiful reprise. We chase the melodies that seem to find us. Until they're finished songs and start to play. When senseless acts of tragedy remind us. That nothing here is promised, not one day This show is proof that history remembers. We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall, and light from dying embers. Remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love; Cannot be killed or swept aside. I sing Vanessa's symphony; Eliza tells her story. Now fill the world with music, love, and pride."

During LGBT Pride Month, host Robert Hammond is pleased to welcome Rochester native Nicolette Hart to Stage Notes. As a  Broadway star and backup vocalist for Bette Midler, she'll talk candidly about her time in the Broadway production of RENT, time on the road with Bette Midler, and her personal thoughts about the LGBT community.
