In the Heights is the 2008 Tony Award winner for Best Musical. With music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a book by Quiara Alegria Hudes, the show is directed by Thomas Kail and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler. In the Heights is a quintessential New York musical about a vibrant and tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. The music pulses with the hopes and dreams of three generations as they struggle to forge an identity in a neighborhood on the brink of transition. The Off-Broadway production received numerous accolades, including Outer Critics and Lucille Lortel Awards for Outstanding Musical and Choreography, Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Choreography and Ensemble Performance, Obie Awards for Outstanding Music and Lyrics, and Clarence Derwent and Theatre World Awards for Miranda. $26.50 front-row tickets will be available by lottery before every performance at the Richard Rodgers Theatre box office -- CASH ONLY!
