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 is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.
“In The Heights,” Lin Manuel Miranda’s first Broadway show, resonates with music and life as it follows three generations. Set over three days, the musical depicts the predominantly Hispanic-American neighborhood of Washington Heights, capturing energy and change within the community as hopes, dreams and traditions come into conflict.
