YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Anthony Medina, scheduled to join the cast of “Hamilton” on Broadway in March, stopped by his former high school and middle school on Thursday, spending several hours answering questions from students.

Medina, who begins rehearsals on Monday, will play the roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton. Medina first visited Walter Panas High School, where, in 2007, he was named “Most Likely to be Famous” by his graduating class. Students from the school’s theater group, the Panas Players, asked Medina questions about his career and theater in general.

He then traveled to Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School, where he met with another group of young actors, as well as students from Lakeland High School.

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?

What ...
