Winner of the Pulitzer, Emmy, 2 Grammy, and 3 Tony Awards, Hamilton’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is a global superstar and his 4-time Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights takes place in the vibrant New York community of Washington Heights. A place where the air is filled with the sounds of salsa, merengue, soul, hip-hop and R & B. It’s also a neighborhood on the brink of change, full of hopes and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is a show sure to capture the heart of all ages with its universal theme of chasing your dreams and finding your true home.
In the Heights is a co-production with Seattle Repertory Theater and Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. It is presented by The Plunkett Family Foundation and sponsored by BMO Harris Bank with Executive Producers Gina and Eric Peter, and Melanie and Steve Booth. The Rep is sponsored in part by the United Performing Arts Fund.
