LUNCHTIME LECTURE- IN THE HEIGHTS In-Person, Indoor Event Announced At Cheney Hall 

LUNCHTIME LECTURE "IN THE HEIGHTS" In-Person, Indoor Event Announced At Cheney Hall

Join David Garnes as he discusses LTM's upcoming production of IN THE HEIGHTS with members of the cast and creative team. The Tony Award Winning Best Musical tells a story about family, community, and life in Washington Heights.

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.

Free and open to the public, Lunchtime Lectures offer an opportunity to learn about LTM's productions, providing insights into the creative process, background information about the play, its production history and the playwright, and much more about theatre and the arts.
