This line from Ernesto’s acting role is a memorable one:
“I have to sing. It’s not just in me… It is me.”
That is a great summary of what Miguel’s journey is about.
How about Abuelita’s recurring line: “No music!” A succinct summation of poor Miguel’s opening state of Disunity.
In fact, those two sides put together sum up nicely Miguel’s arc from:
“No music” to “I have to sing. It’s not just in me, it IS me.”
