In The Heights returns to Chicago's Oriental Theatre
Nov 8, 2011


In The HeightsBroadway In Chicago has announced that individual tickets for IN THE HEIGHTS, winner of four 2008 Tony Awards and the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, will go on sale this Friday, Nov. 11 at 10 am. IN THE HEIGHTS is coming to Chicago's Oriental Theatre from Jan. 10 - 15, 2012.

IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood - 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.

Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune raved, "DELIVERED WITH CONTEMPORARY ZEST AND HIP-HOP IRREVERANCE... FREE, FRESH, SEXY EMPOWERED!" Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times enthused, "A GENUINE BROADWAY MUSICAL THAT BURSTS WITH HEART!"

In addition to winning the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical, Lin-Manuel Miranda, the show's creator, won the Tony Award for Best Music and Lyrics, Andy Blankenbuehler won for Best Choreography, and Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman won for Best Orchestrations. The original cast recording won the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

With a book by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes and conceived by Lin-Manuel Miranda, IN THE HEIGHTS is directed by Joseph A. Callaway Award-winner and Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail. The music arrangements are by Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman. IN THE HEIGHTS also features Tony nominated scenic design (Anna Louizos), costumes (Paul Tazewell), lighting (Howell Binkley), and sound (Acme Sound Partners).
