When we caught up with Wind Dell Woods over the summer, he was stuck at home with his wife and 5-month-old daughter—and he didn’t seem to mind one bit. “It’s kind of nice being locked down,” he said. Though Woods didn’t start on his Ph.D. until his mid-30s, his work fuses two lifelong interests: theater and hip-hop. We asked him about his artistic inspirations, teaching theater during the coronavirus pandemic, and what he loves (and doesn’t) about Hamilton.
