    Benj Pasek grabbed the award for ‘Best Original Song’ at Sunday night’s Golden Globes. NBC10’s Tim Furlong spoke with his mother and former teacher about how Pasek went from the Main Line to the modern day musical "La La Land." (Published Monday, Jan. 9, 2017)

    The publishers of a best-seller about the making of "Hamilton" are hoping for similar luck with another prize-winning musical, "Dear Evan Hansen."

    Grand Central Publishing told The Associated Press on Tuesday that "Dear Evan Hansen: Through the Window" will be released Nov. 21. Billed as a "behind-the-scenes" account, the book was written by the creative team of Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

    The wrenching musical about loneliness, teen angst and suicide won six Tony Awards in June, including best book of a musical for Levenson and best score for Pasek and Paul.

    The book will include personal memories, photographs, unreleased lyrics and the "Dear Evan Hansen" libretto.

    Last year, Grand Central published "Hamilton: The Revolution," featuring commentary from the show's creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda.
