'Blindspotting' (Jul. 20)
All hail the new team of Daveed Diggs, who won a Tony for playing Thomas Jefferson and Lafayette in Hamilton, and Rafael Casal, his creative sparring partner from Oakland, California, and co-writer on this powerhouse tale of a friendship tested. Diggs plays Collin, serving his last three days of probation and trading rap verses with Casal as Miles, his volatile best friend. When our hero witnesses a white cop shoot an unarmed black man, the comedic plot turns tragic – and opens the door for a look at the Bay Area city's uneasy relationship with race, class and mobility.
