In The Heights description

In The Heights – The story

In New York's Hispanic community Washington Heights, Usnavi is the owner of a popular bodega. He's truly, madly and deeply in love with the deliciously pretty and intelligent Vanessa, who works in a local beauty salon, and he's desperate to go back to his home country, the Dominican Republic, to open a bar and enjoy the good life.

In the meantime Nina is just as much in love with shy Benny, who has worked for her parents for years. Her father doesn’t approve – he wants more for his precious daughter, having worked hard to provide her with a good education and decent prospects.

Nina is studying at exclusive Stanford University and while she doesn't want her dad to bankrupt himself paying her fees, he's prepared to go for broke and sell his business to cover the costs. When Abuela Claudia, who raised Usnavi when his parents died, wins $96,000 in a numbers game, things are set to change forever.

This colourful, vibrant story of what 'home' means to different people has already won numerous awards including the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical and an Obie for Lin-Manuel Miranda's thrilling choreography.

It took a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and Outstanding Choreographer. Plus a Clarence Derwent Award, again for Lin-Manuel Miranda, and another for the choreographer from Theatre World.

The musical was also nominated for nine Drama Desk awards and won two of them, making it an un-missable treat for anyone who adores great musicals, legendary choreography, gorgeous show tunes, fabulous costumes, lots of colour, emotion and a feel-good, candy-sweet vibe.

With a host of sing-along latin-influenced songs including In the Heights, Breathe, Benny's Dispatch and It Won't Be Long Now, you'll be singing in your seat, lost in an unforgettable story. See you there – it's tipped as a sell-out so don't leave it too long.

disappointing

Ridiculously hot auditorium. Unintelligible hip hop style singing. Repetitive melodies, repetitive dances. Loud and, sadly, boring. Decamped at the interval.

A must see!

Lin - Manuel Miranda's lyricism is electrifying, the cast are full of the energy and latin flavour that hits the right note ( literally). It was an excellent night, every seat would have been a good seat due to the staging. Great use of the space with minimal but just enough props to bring the story alive. This is great story of immigration, sacrifice and expectations, don't miss this one.

Exciting, energetic, beautifully touching story

I saw this show with the original cast - including the genius himself, Lin Manuel Miranda - in New York in 2011 and fell in love. I was initially reluctant to see the London cast as I didn't think anyone could measure up. This show went above and beyond my expectations and did the original show justice while creating its own unique production. I absolutely adore it and won't hesitate to see it again and again!!

Saturday night at the theatre.

We booked to see In the Heights after reading the reviews on the show. It is easy to say we were not disappointed. The entrance to the theatre is very in keeping with the show. The seating on each side of the stage really makes you feel like you are part of the show. All the actors were excellent and gave 100% . We all thought that the show was excellent.

Latino rap & dance

It was an enjoyable evening, but a lot of the dialogue was lost as the rapping was often unintelligible, although one could keep up with the gist of it. The actress who plays Daniela is the star of the show as she has all the funniest lines and plays the part brilliantly. The singing was first class and the dancing of a very high standard.

Very enjoyable show

Got off to a bad start with an half hour delay. But after that it was a very high energy, musical with great dancing and music. Thoroughly enjoyable for the whole family and a couple of the female leads were sizzling hot!!

A fabulous journey full of energy and love and laughter

This was such a wonderful show, I loved every minute of it. Moreover, the venue was great, I advise to go early so you can hang out a little in the theatre bar, and hang out after the show and you get to have a drink with all the cast. A must see. I will probably go again.

Review: IN THE HEIGHTS at the Kings Cross Theatre

by Sarah Mercer | Monday, October 19 2015, 10:10

In The Heights In The Heights is the perfect antidote to a London winter’s evening. Fast paced, with a sparkling cast and sizzling dance numbers, it is utterly gripping and entertaining, the King’s Cross Theatre providing a portal to the vibrant world of New York City.

Set on one street in the Washington Heights district, In The Heights follows the story of a community trapped in a tug of war, between the harsh reality of survival and their own dreams and aspirations.
