From the creators of the Broadway phenomenon HAMILTON, the multi-Tony Award-winning IN THE HEIGHTS 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, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS, the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations is great for the whole family.
