HCC Music and Theater 2018 Fall Musical
Tony-Winning Best Musical
In The Heights
Set around Fourth of July celebrations in the primarily Latino neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City, “In the Heights” tells the universal stories of three generations living in this vibrant community. Their neighborhood is on the brink of change, and the characters sing about their hopes and struggles. These songs tell audiences about the dreams of first-generation college student Nina Rosario; Abuela Claudia, who left her home country of Cuba as a child; Usnavi de la Vega and Daniela, who fight to keep their small businesses open as the neighborhood faces gentrification; and many others. Each character negotiates which traditions are important for them to keep and which ones they should leave behind.
Music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and book by Quiara Alegría Hudes.
Directed by Patricia Sandoval and Ellen Cogen.
