Bway-Bound In the Heights Concludes Run on July 15
In the Heights, a new musical playing at Off-Broadway's 37 Arts (450 West 37th Street), will play its final performance Sunday, July 15, 2007. This is the last chance to see the critically-acclaimed new musical before it moves to Broadway during the 2007-2008 season.
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. Alex Lacamoire is music director and music arrangements are by Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman. Lin-Manuel Miranda also stars in the role of Usnavi.
In the Heights "is a quintessential New York musical about a vibrant and tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. The music pulses with the hopes and dreams of three generations as they struggle to forge an identity in a neighborhood on the brink of transition," as described in press materials.
