The new musical In the Heights, which began previews on January 9th, opened on February 8th at Off-Broadway's 37 Arts (450 West 37th Street).

With music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a book by Quiara Alegria Hudes, In the Heights is directed by Thomas Kail and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler.  The show is "a new musical about three days in the life of Washington Heights, a vibrant and tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. It's 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. In the Heights is the tale of a community at a crossroads. Find out what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home In the Heights," according to press materials.

The musical stars Andrea Burns, Janet Dacal, Mandy Gonzalez, John Herrera, Christopher Jackson, Robin de Jesus, Priscilla Lopez, Olga Merediz, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Karen Olivo in a cast of 22.
