★★★★ ‘This New York musical turns a South London fringe theatre into a riot of Latin soul, hip-hop, impassioned show tunes and vibrant dancing’ The Times
★★★★ ‘This show is a blast… easily as fun as any of its West End rivals’ Evening Standard
★★★★ ‘This musical… propelled by excellent singing and Drew McOnie’s breathlessly sexy choreography… makes a spectacular London debut at Southwark Playhouse in Luke Sheppard’s soulful, slinky-hipped production.’ Time Out
★★★★ ‘This fire-cracker of a downtown neighbourhood musical’ Whatsonstage
‘This sassy, sexy sensation of a show reaches such dizzying highs of theatrical ecstasy that it is surely destined to burst beyond south London’ The Stage
‘The show generates enough energy to fuel the south London power grid.’ The Guardian
Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical, In The Heights is an exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan’s most vibrant communities – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, 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 struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and incredible Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a ground-breaking 21st century musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.
In The Heights opened at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in February 2008. The production was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards, winning four for Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. It was also nominated for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
