Off-Broadway Hit Seeks Greater White Way Heights
Perhaps drawing inspiration from the phenomenal success of Spring Awakening and its Tony-nominated move from Off-Broadway to the Great White Way, the spicy hot Off-Broadway hit In the Heights aims to follow a similar trajectory by transferring to Rialto sometime during the new theatrical season.
The musical set in Manhattan's Latino Washington Heights neighborhood includes a score by Obie winner Lin-Manuel Miranda and book by Quiara Alegria Hudes. The show will hit Broadway after revisions are made to the existing show that will enjoy its final performance at 37 Arts this July 15.
Looks like this new season is on course to mix it up with continued innovation for the Broadway musical.
