In the Heights is one of the very latest hit musicals that has caused quite a stir on the Broadway scene. This is a “must see” musical for the world music/dance enthusiast, as its has won 4 Tony awards including Best Musical Show, Best Choreography, Best Original Score, and Best Orchestrations. In addition it won a Grammy award for Best Musical Show Album!

The story takes place in a not-so-well-to-do Latin-American neighborhood in Manhattan, with a plot that centers around appreciation of the goodness of  everyday life at that comfortably familiar place we call home and yet the desire to pursue one’s biggest and wildest dreams. The Latin Pop score is composed by the young talent Lin-Manuel Miranda, who also appears in the production as one of its central-most characters. For more in depth info, read the review or visit the show’s web site, which includes a video clip on the homepage.
