The story of gospel legend BeBe Winans is headed to the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta in January 2016.
Here’s the musical summary:
“Detroit natives BeBe and CeCe Winans, youngest siblings of the Winans family dynasty, experience the ultimate in culture shocks when invited to join Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Praise The Lord network television show. The teenaged Winans become not only television celebrities, but also the ‘adopted children’ of the Bakkers, integrating TV evangelism in Pinewood, North Carolina. As BeBe and CeCe encounter fame, fortune and even a young Whitney Houston, BeBe must learn to balance his desire for success with his true calling.”
The “Born for This: The BeBe Winans Story” musical will be directed by Motown the Musical Director Charles Randolph-Wright. Though the full cast has not been revealed yet, it is confirmed that the show will feature music by BeBe.
