In The Heights

In The Heights_editorialTurn up the heat and get ready to feel the rhythm as In The Heights, a Broadway dance spectacular brings the Washington Heights neighbourhood to the Chapel Off Chapel stage from 20 February.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, and Pulitzer Prize nominee, In The Heights (Music & Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Book by Quiara Alegria Hudes) is a fun and fresh hip-hop musical set in a sizzling summer filled with music and possibilities, that challenges the stereotype of modern day musical theatre.

In The Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighbourhood – the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.

An uplifting, feel good show that reminds us to live, love and let loose, In The Heights features a ground-breaking score that mixes Latin and Hip Hop cultures and is complimented by powerful Break Dancing, Latin American and Hip Hop dance styles.

Director: James Cutler  Cast: Stephen Lopez, James Elmer, Bianca Baykara, Laura Marcucci, Francesca Arena, Peter Sette, Gareth Jacobs, Demi Sorono, Timothy Doherty, Samantha Bruzzese, Joshua Martin, Ashleigh Kiven, Nicolas Mena, Elandrah Ermiha  Music Director: Cameron Thomas  Choreographer: Yvette Lee  Executive Producers: Robbie Carmellotti and Katherine Armstrong
