Photo Flash: Opening Night of Porchlight Music Theatre's IN THE HEIGHTS
From the creator of the current Broadway juggernaut Hamilton, and winner of Tony Awards for "Best Musical" and "Best Original Score," In The Heights tells the universal story of a tight-knit community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood-a place where 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 and dreams, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
