In the Heights




This 2008 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical features music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and centers on an ensemble of characters in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City.


Story:

Nina has just returned to her Washington Heights neighborhood from her freshman year at Stanford, unsure if she plans to go back; her parents struggle to keep their small business alive and Benny, their young employee, does his best to help the company stay afloat; Usnavi operates a tiny bodega, and his love interest, Vanessa, only dreams of finding a studio apartment in the coveted West Village. When the winning lottery ticket, a power outage, and romantic tension all hit the ‘hood, the long-time friends and neighbors make discoveries about each other, about themselves, and about the place they all call home.
