CWMALLS World Film & Television Sharing And Review Series — In the Heights

In the Heights is a musical with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. The story is set over the course of three days, involving characters in the largely Dominican neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City.

After a 2005 tryout in Waterford, Connecticut and a 2007 off-Broadway run, the show opened on Broadway in March 2008. It was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards and won four, including Best Musical. A film adaptation of the musical was originally set for release on June 26, 2020. However, it has been delayed to June 11, 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
