In the Heights - 2008 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$41.50 - $121.50

Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical.



Welcome to the kind of musical that comes around once in a generation. A musical that builds on the best traditions of theater while forging into fresh new territory. A musical about the importance of home, family and finding where you belong.



IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in Manhattan's Washington Heights - 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.



Discover where you belong, at Broadway's new Tony Award-winning classic, IN THE HEIGHTS.

Featured Reviews For In the Heights


UPTOWN UPSTAGED - New York Post
It's certainly no rude "Spring Awakening." It's more like "Guys and Dolls" seen through rose-colored Latino spectacles, with a little gambling (strictly legal), scarce sex (all of it straight) and no drugs. No cigarettes, either, come to think of it. Instead, it's a pretty picture postcard of Washington Heights - one with few lows.

In The Heights - nytheatre.com
I love the idea of In the Heights, and I think Miranda's voice as performer and writer needs to be heard on the NYC stage. But this show is a jumble of ideas, some of them interesting, many others quite mundane or cliched. In the Heights has got a beat; it's got energy. But it's finally so much less than it ought to have been!

After over 1200 performances on Broadway - the multi Tony Award-winning hit, In The Heights, closes this weekend. What better way to bid a fond adios to the beloved show than for BroadwayWorld to present this exclusive video flashback with never-before-seen footage of the sitzprobe (where the original cast and orchestra meet and perform for the first time). No fancy camera work and editing. Just pure raw talent doing what they love most.
