The Bridge

Savannah, Ga (WSAV) – Since the release of Hamilton on Disney Plus, the musical has become even more popular. The hottest ticket on Broadway became the most popular show on any streaming device in July.

Special thanks to the Warthen family members who graciously granted us an interview for our story.
