About In the Heights
In the Heights is a new musical about three days in the life of Washington Heights, a vibrant and tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. It’s 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.
With an amazing cast, incredible dancing, and a gripping tale of hope and self-discovery, In the Heights is Broadway’s hottest hit, with four 2008 Tony Awards! The New York Times calls it “a musical about chasing your dreams and finding your true home, with enough energy to light up the George Washington Bridge. A SINGULAR NEW SENSATION!”
