Hamilton

An updated edition of "Broadway: The American Musical"--a volume by your host--ushers in the groundbreakers of the 2010s:  Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton, Fun Home, Book of Mormon, and more. This Sunday at 3PM, live or streaming.

A Fourth of July tradition, as we ring in Independence with the show that celebrated our Founding Fathers nearly half-a-century before Hamilton.  Songs from the Broadway and film versions, plus the only cover rendition from the score ever recorded.  This Sunday at 3PM, live or streaming.

Nervous and upset because the American musical theater's highest honor is tonight at 8?  Then bring yourself up-to-date with selections from all the nominated stars and shows:  Hamilton, Shuffle Along, Waitress, Bright Star, School of Rock, She Loves Me and more.  This Sunday at 3PM.

As a follow-up to our "Real Live Girls" program, we're looking at the figures from history from the distaff side:  politicians, artists, performers who inspired such musicals as Fiorello!, 1776, George M!, Barnum, and, of course, Hamilton.  This week at 3PM.
