To those lucky Honors participants who’ve secured tickets to see In The Heights this Sunday: congrats!
Here’s some background info, to make your theater-going experience more meaningful.
First, here’s the review of the original run from The New York Times.
Second, here’s Lin-Manuel Miranda’s bio on the show’s website, in which Washington Heights plays a prominent role.
Next, there’s some great content about the show on PBS’s website, including interviews, dance numbers, and music. Recommended.
And, lastly, even though Lin-Manuel Miranda is not performing on Sunday–I think he’s off in LA, working on the movie version of the play–I can’t resist pointing your attention to some of his other performances:
Enjoy the show!
