SYNOPSIS – IN THE HEIGHTS
From the creator of HAMILTON, Lin-Manuel Miranda, this musical tells the universal story of a vibrant community 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 is a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, and pressures; where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you and which ones you leave behind.
Not even Mr. Rogers Neighborhood is so cheery as the colorful, multilingual quarters found in IN THE HEIGHTS. The Latin hip-hop music, enthusiastic dancing, and passionate lyrics will take your breath away.
