In the Heights
"IN THE HEIGHTS" is an uplifting and exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan's most vibrant communities - a place where the coffee 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 struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and unforgettable Latin and hip-hop infused score, "IN THE HEIGHTS" is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.
Continuing their roles are: Sam MAckay as 'Usnavi' ("Wonder.land"); Gabriela Garcia as 'Nina' ("Ghost The Musical"); David Bedella as 'Kevin' ("Jerry Springer - The Opera"); Norma Attallah as 'Abuela' ("The Sound of Music - Live"); Jonathan Bishop as 'Graffiti Pete' ("The Lion King") and Vas Constanti as 'Piragua Guy' ("Flashdance"). They are joined by: Reiss Hinds; Chritopher Tendai; Michael Cortez; Shanice Burton; Raffaella Covino; Genesis Lynea; Alex Thomas and Tara Young. Further casting to be announced shortly.
