JOAN MARCUS / HAMILTON BROADWAY

Today we're talking about one of the biggest sensations in the history of American theatre: "Hamilton: An American Musical." Composer, lyrisict, and preformer Lin-Manuel Miranda was inspired to create "Hamilton" after reading Ron Chernow's 800-page biography of Alexander Hamilton.

Siblings BeBe and CeCe Winans left Detroit as teenagers and moved to Charlotte to join a Christian TV network. They worked as backup singers for popular televangelists, Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, and eventually became icons of gospel music. A new musical at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta follows the siblings’ journey as they juggle fame and the pressures of growing up in the eyes of millions. It’s called “Born For This: The BeBe Winans Story.”
