i feel like this is a good moment to remind everyone about the in the heights eater bonnet performance, which was a take-off on “one day more” from les mis feat. lmm as a rapping enjolras (complete with xylophone vest) and karen olivo as sexy javert. it is, somehow, exactly as amazing as it sounds.
