Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.¬†Winner of four 2008 Tony Awards¬ģ including Best Musical and Best Score, In the Heights,¬†Lin-Manuel Miranda's debut Broadway musical with a book by Pulitzer Prize winner¬†Quiara Alegria Hudes, 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.
