North Carolina Theatre, the region's premiere nonprofit professional theatre, is proud to present Lin-Manuel Miranda's In the Heights, playing until October 21st at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh.
From the creator of Hamilton, In the Heights tells 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 you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
Starring in the role of Usnavi, the Dominican-American bodega owner, is Andres Quintero. Quintero boasts television and film credits including Madam Secretary, Law & Order: SVU, and more. His previous theatre credits include regional productions of In the Heights, Rent, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and the national tour of Altar Boyz.
