WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Broadway Center Stage, a series of musicals in semi-staged concerts at the Kennedy Center, continues with In the Heights. Winner of four 2008 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score, In the Heights was Lin-Manuel Miranda's debut Broadway musical, with a book by Pulitzer Prize finalist Quiara Alegría Hudes. It tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood — a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, and pressures — a community where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you and which you leave behind.
