2015 - 2016 SEASON
The Harlem Repertory Theatre's
IN THE HEIGHTS
Music and Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Book by Quiara Alegría Hudes
The HRT will open its 2015-16 season with Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical theatre masterwork, IN THE HEIGHTS. The cast of 20 will bring this eclectic score to life in a bold new expressionistic interpretation. The environmental seating arrangement will transfix the audience as the young and energetic cast sings and dances throughout four separate performance areas in the newly renovated Tato Laviera Theatre – often a few feet away from the audience.
March 21st to August 29
(Playing every Saturday night at 7:00PM except April 25th and May 2nd)
IN THE HEIGHTS won the 2008 Tony awards for BEST MUSICAL and BEST ORIGINAL SCORE. Charles Isherwood wrote in his New York Times review: "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."
