In the Heights is a musical that celebrates the immigrant experience. It highlights the joys, the struggles, the relationships, the dreams, of a community living at the top of Manhattan in Washington Heights. The story reminds us of how interconnected our lives are, that communities and families rise and fall together, and that “home” is more than where you live. We’ve worked so hard to breathe life into these characters – to tell their stories with respect and love. We can’t wait to share their stories with you – to invite you to their home “at the top of the world.”
