Nyack College actors and musicians will bring a production of “In the Heights,” the first smash Broadway hit for playwright, lyricist and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda to the stage of the American Theatre of Actors, 314 West 54th Street in Manhattan. The first of eight performances opens on Thursday, November 30 at 8:00 PM. Shows continue December 1 and 2 at 8:00 PM; December 3 at 2:00 PM; December 7, 8 and 9 at 8:00 PM and December 10 at 2:00 PM.
“In the Heights” earned 13 Tony Award nominations and won four for Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestration before Miranda took Broadway by storm with his wildly successful, “Hamilton.” Miranda's 2009 project that the Nyack cast and crew will revive this year also won a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.
This musical comedy is full of New York City drama set to the soundtrack of hip-hop, salsa, merengue and soul music. You’ll be captivated by three days in the lives of a bodega owner, his relatives and friends in their tight-knit Latino community.
If you cheered along with us at Nyack's 2016 production of "West Side Story," you don't want to miss this year's equally enchanting performances.
