In the Heights
Combining the sounds and rhythms of salsa, soul, hip-hop and merengue with explosive street dance and rap, this revolutionary musical has been a Broadway smash hit since its debut in 2008. Uplifting and energising, In the Heights takes audiences on a journey into the lives of the residents of Washington Heights – a New York City neighbourhood on the brink of change – and in the process poignantly captures what it means to chase your dreams while staying connected to your community.
The characters of Washington Heights grapple with love, lust, identity and ambition – from Usnavi: the first generation Dominican-American kiosk owner facing rising rents and gentrification, to Nina: forced by poverty to drop out of her Ivy-league school, and Benny: the ambitious wannabe entrepreneur. All the while, the promise of a life-changing lottery ticket hangs in the air.
Directed by Luke Joslin and produced by Blue Saint Productions in association with Neil Gooding, In the Heights at the Sydney Opera House features a diverse cast of exceptional Australian performers who deliver an exhilarating and moving production.
Nominated for an impressive 13 Tony Awards in 2008, In the Heights is an unique musical experience that will leave audiences uplifted and tapping their toes.
