September 11 - October 6
Music and Lyrics by
Book by Quiara Alegría Hudes
Directed by Rachel Rockwell
This is the show that took Broadway by storm. Nominated for 13 Tony Awards, taking home 4 including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestration. It’s three days in the lives of residents living on 183rd Street in New York’s Washington Heights. A primarily Hispanic neighborhood, family bonds are strong; neighborhood ties are equally as binding; but change is in the air that will impact everyone. It’s a story of dreams and sacrifices, loyalties and love, all taking place in one city block surrounded by millions.
This will be the show Chicago will be talking about this fall. It’s the pure energy of Washington Heights pulsing with the poetry of rap, soaring ballads and powerful Latin-inspired grooves resulting in one of the most original scores to hit Broadway in years. In a community on the brink of change, full of hopes and dreams, the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you and which you leave In the Heights.
