What we're geeking out over: See New Character Posters from IN THE HEIGHTS!

The creator of "Hamilton" and the director of "Crazy Rich Asians" invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... "In the Heights." Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community.

The film adaptation of "In The Heights" will be released on June 11th. See new character posters, originally posted on Twitter, here!

The cast of "In The Heights" features Anthony Ramos, Leslie Grace, Corey Hawkins, Melissa Barrera, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Dascha Polanco, Stephanie Beatriz, Gregory Diaz IV, Olga Meridez, and Jimmy Smits.


What we're watching: Final Cast of RENT Lends a Hand for COVID Grief Network's 'Seasons of Love'

With many parallels between the current pandemic and the AIDS crisis, Broadway cast member Adam Kantor says of Seasons of Love: "It's a song that carries all of it. There is grief underneath it all, and even more importantly, celebration of life. It is very cathartic, to be held and acknowledged by community through the ups and downs. I can't think of a song that does that more simply and beautifully than Seasons of Love."

Participants in the video found sharing cathartic and comforting. One shared "getting to represent my father was absolutely amazing, and brought joy and tears to my eyes! Our loved ones were not a number and didn't want to or need to die this way."


See you bright and early tomorrow, BroadwayWorld!
