THE SIZZLING MUSICAL FROM HAMILTON'S CREATOR

Winner of the Pulitzer, Emmy, 2 Grammy, and 3 Tony Awards, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is a global superstar, and his 4-time Tony Award-winning musical is the perfect way to kick off our 65th Anniversary Season.

The vibrant New York community of Washington Heights is a place where the air is filled with the sounds of salsa, merengue, soul, hip-hop and R & B. It’s also a neighborhood on the brink of change, full of hopes and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is a show sure to capture the heart of all ages with its universal themes of chasing your dreams and finding your true home.
