    At the famed Apollo Theater in New York City, Oprah sits down with Lin-Manuel Miranda, the genius behind the Tony-, Grammy- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical "Hamilton." Lin-Manuel shares behind-the-scenes stories and insights into how he wrote and created the show that became a Broadway phenomenon. He explains how legacy plays a huge role in the lives of both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, and reveals what he believes will be the greatest legacy of the show. Lin-Manuel provides an update on his newborn son, Francisco, and news from his beloved Puerto Rico, which was devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria. Finally, Lin-Manuel opens up about how "creative loneliness" during his childhood in New York City helped shape his career. In this special edition of "Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations," you'll hear Oprah and Lin-Manuel's full interview, featuring more than 15 minutes of bonus content not included in Part 2 of the OWN special "Oprah at the Apollo."
