Before the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton...there was In the Heights! This 2008 Tony® winning musical comes from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creative mastermind and recipient of the 2015 MacArthur "Genius" Award. With a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes, this story explores the vibrant community of New York's Washington Heights, a neighborhood on the brink of change. Filled with a Tony® and Grammy® winning score, find out what it takes to make a living, the cost of having a dream, and where the biggest struggle can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
Tickets are $31 for adults, $27 for seniors (65 and older), and $12 for students with a valid I.D. A $3 service fee per ticket will be applied at time of purchase. Preview Night on Thursday, February 11 is $10 with general admission seating. Group discounts are available for parties of four or more.
