Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical, Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'In the Heights' is the story of three eventful days in the vibrant community of Washington Heights.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony winning musical 'In the Heights' tells the universal story of a vibrant community in Manhattan's Washington Heights – 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.

Ambitious, Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Fluffy

See it if you have any sense, at all, of Washington Heights & the latino experience. I do, I AM. But I didn't get what all the hype was about.

Don't see it if Lin-Manuel Miranda bugs you, even remotely. SO indugent, I almost didn't see Hamilton (gratefully I did). Nice, family-oriented, just "ok".

Don't see it if you don't like hip hop/rap/Latin music. If you have a problem w/immigrants and Americans we don't see on stage often stay away. Embrace it!
