About the Show
This exuberant Tony Award®-winning musical presents the universal story of a vibrant immigrant community seeking their 21st century version of the American dream. With Grammy Award-winning music and lyrics as well as a book by 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes, In The Heights is a cleverly crafted mixture of comedy and heart set to a lusty new beat. The rich and eclectic score is a joyous mix of hip-hop, rap, jazz, pop, salsa, and merengue.
Set on the pulsing streets of the vibrant New York neighborhood of Washington Heights, this musical is a non-stop dance spectacular. To bring this energy to our stage, the REP is once again partnering with the talented dance and theatre students from The San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts and their live 20 piece orchestra!
In The Heights invites you into a neighborhood on the cusp of change. It’s colorful characters draw you into their world and dreams, as they decide which traditions to keep and which to leave behind.
