"Best Musical" - "In The Heights"
Comes To The Opera House
January 12 - 24

"In The Heights," winner of four 2008 Tony Awards and the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, is coming to the Boston Opera House for a limited two-week engagement January 12 – 24, 2010.

With a book by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes and conceived by Lin-Manuel Miranda, "In The Heights" is directed by Joseph A. Callaway Award-winner and Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail. Tickets are on sale now.

"In The Heights" tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood -- 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 struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.

The company at the Opera House will feature Kyle Beltran, Daniel Bolero, Rogelio Douglas Jr., Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer, Arielle Jacobs, Jose-Luis Lopez, Genny Lis Padilla, Isabel Santiago, Elise Santora, Shaun Taylor-Corbett and Natalie Toro.

Rounding out the cast are Sandy Alvarez, David Baida, Christina Black, Natalie Caruncho, Oscar Cheda, DeWitt Cooper III, Daniel Cruz, Wilkie Ferguson, Kristina Fernandez, Rayanne Gonzales, Dominique Kelley, Rebecca Kritzer, Morgan Matayoshi, Joseph Morales, April Ortiz, and Carlos Salazar.

"In The Heights" opened March 9, 2008, on Broadway, where it continues to play to full houses at the Richard Rodgers Theater. Of the original production, The Washington Post said "In The Heights" was "pure Broadway. An evening of old-style, innocent pleasure." Ben Brantley of The New York Times added "In The Heights" is "an exuberant, animated shrine to the importance of family ties and being faithful to where you come from."

In addition to winning the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical, Lin-Manuel Miranda, the show’s creator, won the Tony Award for Best Music and Lyrics, Andy Blankenbuehler won for Best Choreography, and Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman won for Best Orchestrations. The original cast recording won the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, and Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to produce a feature film based on the smash hit musical.
