WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In the Heights made a splash on Broadway, scoring the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical and winning over audiences with its fresh-faced charm and vibrant music. With incredible hip-hop dancing, a contemporary Latin-flavored score and a story from Lin-Manuel Miranda (creator of the hit Broadway show Hamilton), In the Heights is an exhilarating journey into the lives of the residents of the Dominican-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City -- a place where the coffee from Usnavi's corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the scent of impending change. Like many in his community, Usnavi struggles to decide which traditions to keep and which to leave behind.
