Play:  In the Heights

Book:  Quiara Alegría Hudes

Music & Lyrics: Lin-Manuel Miranda

Setting:  Washington Heights, New York City

Synopsis:  Change has come to the Latino community of Manhattan’s Washington Heights. Rents are rising. Businesses are closing. And a long-time resident by the name of Usnavi thinks this might be the perfect time to close his bodega and pursue his dream of opening a bar in his home country, the Dominican Republic, a place his parents spoke of often before they died when he was still a child. His story is intertwined with a fiery cosmetologist by the name of Vanessa, who works in a unisex beauty salon that is also in danger of closing, and his childhood friend, Nina, who is trying to decide if she should finish her studies at Stanford or pursue a romantic relationship with Benny, a shy young African-American guy who works for her parents. Iin the middle of all this drama, the kindly Abuela Claudia, the woman who raised Usnavi after his parents died, wins enough money in a numbers game to make everyone’s dreams come true. In the Heights combines Latin rhythms and dance with hip-hop lyrics to tell a captivating story about what it means to chase your dreams as you cling to your roots, and to celebrate the community from which you grew.
