Broadway Rewind: Lights Up on IN THE HEIGHTS Opening Night! VideoBroadway Rewind: Lights Up on IN THE HEIGHTS Opening Night!
by BroadwayWorld TV - May 3, 2020

This episode is for all the Lin-Manuel Miranda fans. Broadway World's own Richard Ridge takes us to the opening night of the Broadway run of his landmark musical In the Heights, where Lin told Ridge, why the musical touches such a diverse audience of every age. 'Tonight, I feel a real sense of accomplishment. I think the immigrant and universal things that happen are, we do the jobs that no one else wants to do. Our parents sacrifice and they do things that they don't want to do, so we can do better than they did. I think everyone responds to that and it strikes a universal chord.'
