THREE SHOWS ONLY :  March 26, 27 & 28


This hip new musical had a successful off-Broadway run before coming to Broadway. The show opened at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in March of 2008. From the producers of Rent and Avenue Q comes In the Heights a modern musical that portrays a close community on the verge of change while incorporating hip hop, salsa and Broadway ballads to deliver its message.

In the Heights details three days in the life of Washington Heights a colorful, tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. Through the music the story develops and the audience is able to feel the hopes and dreams of three Latino generations as they try to establish an identity for themselves in a neighborhood on the brink of transition. When the community finds themselves at a crossroad they must stick together to try and achieve their dreams no matter the cost.
