Lin-Manuel Miranda is no stranger to Filipino beki (gay) speak, having called theater icon Lea Salonga “mamshie” and “bes” in a previous Twitter exchange.

In a picture with theater actress Rachelle Ann Go who stars in the West End version of “Hamilton,” Miranda tagged his bes Salonga and said, “Hey mamsh @MsLeaSalonga your besh says hi dood pare.”

A well-meaning netizen tried to inform him of the new developments in slang, such as “lodi” (idol), to which the award-winning American playwright and actor replied, “Cool it kulit.”

He also admitted he was a bit rusty when Salonga told him, “Dude, we might need to update your colloquialisms. Chos.”

He replied, “#OldManMiranda.”

Perhaps the two Pinays on the “Hamilton” cast, Go and Christine Allado, can bring him up to speed. They play the Schuyler sisters on the historically based rap and hip-hop musical.

The London cast just finished their first technical rehearsal, Go shared on social media.

Miranda was there to witness it and shared how emotional he felt.

“London, gird your heart, This company is not playing around,” he shared. – Inquirer.net
