The 2008 Tony Winning (best musical) In The Heights will finally get its Capital Region Premiere at the Cohoes (NY) Music Hall from September 13-23, 2012.
In the Heights is an award-winning musical about life in Washington Heights, a tight-knit community at the foot of the George Washington Bridge in Manhattan 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. A gripping story and incredible dancing, In The Heights is an authentic and exhilarating journey into one of Manhattan’s most vibrant communities.
In the Heights features music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. The story explores three days in the characters’ lives in the New York City Dominican-American neighborhood of Washington Heights.
