Correspondent Charlie Rose interviews creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda on the stage of the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where the show opened in August.

Here's how the "60 Minutes" webpage is teasing the segment: "President Obama came. His wife and children saw it, too. So did Vice President Biden and his predecessor, Dick Cheney. Beyonce and Jay-Z took it in, as did Susan Sarandon and Meryl Streep — to name but a few. So what's the fuss about on Broadway that's attracting the A-listers and selling out each night? It's a musical about the man on the U.S. $10 bill. But its creative approach is creating a sensation and the show is smashing box-office records. Charlie Rose goes behind the curtain to report on Hamilton, an unorthodox treatment of the story of America's first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton."

"60 Minutes" can be seen 7:30-8:30 PM ET on CBS, Channel 2 in New York.
