Return to ‘The Heights’ at the Arsht
Before “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda wowed the theater world with his musical, “In the Heights,” winner of 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.
The show retells 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 to keep and which ones to leave behind.
If you liked the recent movie adaptation, revisit Miranda’s unforgettable neighborhood one more time on stage at the Arsht Center in Miami. Loxen Productions, in association with Loud and Live, is mounting a new production, Friday, July 23 – Sunday, July 25, made for Miami by South Florida artists.
Tickets for “In the Heights” start at $51.25 at ArshtCenter.org.
