Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical takes place over three sweltering July days in the lives of residents in the Latino neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City.

Musical Theatre Southwest, Albuquerque’s premiere community theater will present the local premiere of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical In the Heights June 8- July 1

In the Heights takes place over three sweltering July days in the lives of residents in the Latino neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City, where the coffee from bodegas is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the music of three generations pours into the streets. The close-knit residents have great aspirations for themselves and their children, and the young members of the community must decide their fates based on what they seek for their futures while keeping an eye on their rich history as immigrants.

The 2008 Tony Award-winning Best Musical features music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) and a Tony-nominated book by Quiara Alegría Hudes.

In the Heights is co-directed by Gigi Bella Guajardo and Jonathan Ragsdale and will be presented at the MTS Center for Theater Black Box, June 8 through July 1. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2 PM. Tickets are $22 for general admission. Discounts are available for ATG/TLC members, Seniors and Students ($20).

The Show Goes On …

You know Hamilton, but did you know that Lin-Manuel Miranda penned the music for In the Heights now playing at the MTS Center for Theatre (6320 Domingo Rd. NE, Ste. B) courtesy of Musical Theatre Southwest? Set in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City, In the Heights covers three days in the lives of its residents. Here, big themes are translated into daily struggles as the characters observe change on a wide scale in their corner of the city, grappling with their own homes and dreams in the midst of them. In the Heights won several Tony’s after its premiere in 2008 and under director Gigi Bella Guajardo’s leadership, this local production is world-class. New shows have been added to the play’s run because its just that good. Catch it Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through July 7. Times and tickets are available online at musicaltheatresw.com.
