In the Heights fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s (Hamilton, Moana) kinetic music and lyrics with Director Jon M. Chu’s (Director of Crazy Rich Asians) lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.
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 from Hamilton) who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines, and sings about a better life.
