In The Heights at Hayes Theatre

In The Heights at Hayes Theatre

Award winning production company Blue Saint Productions is bringing the Tony Award winning musical, In The Heights to the Hayes Theatre Co for its much-anticipated professional NSW debut. Conceived by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the composer behind the Hamilton phenomenon, this brand new, authentic production will run from 16 March 2018.

In The Heightstells the story of a vibrant Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican community in New York City’s Washington Heights neighbourhood—a place where the coffee from the bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the streets explode with the songs and rhythms of three generations. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In The Heightsis the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

The show was conceived, and the music and lyrics were written by, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda is perhaps best known today as the creator of Hamilton, which won 11 Tony Awards in 2016 including Best Musical. The book for the show was written by Quiara Alegría Hudes, who won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play Water by the Spoonful.

Produced by the team behind Violetand Songs for A New World, In the Heights features an Australian creative team with director Luke Joslin (Songs for a New World), musical direction by Lucy Bermingham (Violet) and choreography by Amy Campbell (The Bodyguard resident choreographer). Auditions for the multi-racial cast will be taking place shortly.
