IN THE HEIGHTS

Music Lin-Manuel Miranda; Lyrics Lin-Manuel Miranda; Book Quiara Alegría Hudes

 

Launceston College is thrilled to be presenting In the Heights, an exciting musical written by Lin – Manuel Miranda, who also wrote the smash hit musical Hamilton.

 

The story explores three days in the lives of a New York City Latino neighbourhood. The score features hip-hop, salsa, merengue and soul music.

 

In the Heights, set in New York City’s Washington Heights—a place where the coffee from the bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the streets explode with the songs and rhythms of three generations. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, 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 the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography, and Best Orchestrations.
