In the Heights
Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
A celebration of community, family and cultural heritage, In the Heights is an effervescent and entertaining musical, fusing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s (Hamilton) kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s (Crazy Rich Asians) lively and authentic eye for storytelling.
