In the Heights is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s pre-Hamilton Broadway musical directed by Jon Chu for the big screen. The story celebrates not a founding father, but a New York neighborhood.
Set during a record-breaking New York City heat wave, this vibrant screen adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s stage musical pulses with musical numbers that blend of hip-hop, Latin pop and salsa.
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical is an ode to the neighborhood near where he grew up. Now a movie musical, the film’s director, cinematographer and choreographer discuss the new adaptation.
