IN THE HEIGHTS is brought to the stage by the creative team of Todd Poelstra, Mickey Nugent, Martha Reed and Dr. Mark Nelson. This upbeat contemporary musical embraces Latin rhythms and dance, and spices it with hip-hop lyrics to tell a captivating story about chasing the American dream while clinging to your roots. In Washington Heights, community is everything and the residents struggle to survive as they grapple with love, identity and racism.
