People who know me know I'm obsessed with Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical “Hamilton.” Brilliant. Historical. Historic. And a documentary about it is going to air on PBS! Yes! When? In ... September. Aw, man.
But! If you saw the Grammys the other night, you saw the opening number. And if you didn't, here it is. Starts slowly (Burr!) but picks up.
