Before there was Hamilton, there was In the Heights–Lin-Manuel Miranda’s exuberant celebration of family and community set to the infectious rhythms of a Washington Heights neighborhood. Directed by Ryan Weible in his company directorial debut, with music direction by Armando Fox and choreography by Allison Paraiso, In the Heights lights up Contra Costa Civic Theatre Main Stage beginning June 9-July 16; Friday& Saturday at 8:00 pm, Sunday at 2:00 pm.
Winner of the 2008 Tony for Best Musical and the 2009 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album, In the Heights, was also a finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize. Charles Isherwood of the New York Times wrote, “When this musical erupts in one of its expressions of collective joy, the energy it gives off could light up the George Washington Bridge for a year or two.”
