The Story

In the Heights follows Usnavi, a Washington Heights native who has mixed feelings about closing his store and retiring to the Dominican Republic after inheriting his grandmother’s fortune. The story also centers on the Manhattan neighborhood’s people, heritage and their goals and aspirations.

The first production premiered in 2005 before it opened on Broadway in March 2008. It was nominated for 13 Tony Awards and won four, including Best Musical. 

Movie review

OK, let’s talk about musicals. Let’s talk about the way that an enormous movie screen filled with dancing bodies personifies joy for so many of us, and about how emotions expressed in song — be it traditional musical-theater song, rap poetry or a glorious medley of both — feel bigger and brighter. And let’s talk about how, after a year of darkness and solitude and worry, “In the Heights” arrives like a gift wrapped in sunshine. Maybe I didn’t exactly dance down the aisle on my way out of the theater, but rest assured that I did so in my heart.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical, written with playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes, was a Broadway hit back in 2008. Now, after a long delay, it arrives on-screen — a bold, bright, infectiously joyous musical about love and dreams, set in a primarily Latino neighborhood in Manhattan where “the streets were made of hustle.”

Usnavi (Anthony Ramos) is one of those hustlers — a young man who owns a neighborhood bodega and dreams of a better life elsewhere. (You watch — as you do with all good musicals — knowing that no place could ever be better than right there.) He’s the central character, but others join the dance: Benny (Corey Hawkins), a resourceful car-service dispatcher; Nina (Leslie Grace), home from college and heavily feeling the weight of her family’s expectations; Vanessa (Melissa Barrera), who works at the local beauty salon but dreams of being a fashion designer; Abuela Claudia (Olga Merediz, reprising her Tony Award-winning Broadway role), the neighborhood’s loving resident grandma.
