Video posted by InTheHeightsBroadwayIn the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in Manhattan's Washington Heights – 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. In 2008, the musical won 4 Tony Awards (Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography, and Best Orchestrations).
