In the Heights Washington DC Tickets
In the Heights Washington DC TicketsIn the Heights is the sprawling musical epic from the mind of Lin-Manuel Miranda. Before he created the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Hamilton, Miranda wrote the complex, interwoven story of the vibrant Hispanic-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City. If you are in the Washington DC area, then you can experience Miranda’s debut musical live onstage.
Hundreds of StoriesLin-Manuel Miranda wrote the first draft for In the Heights in 1999 as a sophomore at Wesleyan University. After performing the 80-minute one-act show on campus, he decided to shelve the project indefinitely. A few years later, his former Wesleyan classmates approached him with the idea of developing the draft into a full-scale production. Playwright Quiara Alegria Hudes, who later won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Water By the Spoonful, joined the creative team in 2004 to write the book. This new version of In the Heights underwent tryouts at a Connecticut theater in 2005 and the Off-Broadway 37 Arts Theatre in 2007. The Off-Broadway production received nine nominations from the Drama Desk Awards, winning twice. Following the end of the tryout period, In the Heights made its official premiere at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre on March 9, 2008, with a cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda, Andrea Burns, Janet Dacal and Robin de Jesus. It ran for 1,185 performances over a two-year stretch. Drawing comparisons to Rent, the production was well-received by critics and audiences alike. It was the recipient of 13 Tony Award nominations, including wins for Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. It also won a 2008 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. In recognition of its cultural significance, In the Heights was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
