“In Born for This, Detroit teenagers BeBe and CeCe Winans experience the ultimate in culture shock when invited to join Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Praise the Lord Network in Pineville, North Carolina. Jim and Tammy become an unlikely surrogate family as the two teenagers emerge as the hottest stars in televangelical America. Eventually winning mainstream recognition, Bebe must learn to reconcile the temptations of fame and fortune with the things he ultimately values more.
Born for This is a wildy funny yet emotional journey toward self-discovery. A new musical, it features original music by multi-Grammy Award-winning artist BeBe Winans and a book by Charles Randolph-Wright (Motown: The Musical) and BeBe Winans. Randolph-Wright also directs.
Performances continue through August 6th at the Broad Stage.“
