The Art House presents
In The Heights
9 Jan - 11 Jan 2019 Showing at The Art House
It's THE all-star musical to see in Sydney this summer, and it's coming for an exclusive premiere season to the Central Coast!
From America’s hottest new musical mastermind, Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Moana) comes this quadruple Tony Award®winning ‘Best Musical’.
This summer, it’s lights up on Washington Heights, a close-knit neighbourhood in Manhattan, where the heat is stifling and the A-train is the only way out.
Trapped running a debt-ridden bodega, Usnavi longs for a simpler life in the Dominican Republic. Alongside him, a community as vibrant as the city itself yearns for change. A winning lottery ticket is sold, but to whom? Is it the family who long to send their daughter to an ivy league school; or the woman desperately trying to find a home?
Following a sold out, critically acclaimed season at Hayes Theatre Co in 2018, this salsa-fuelled contemporary musical returns to Sydney for a strictly
limited season this summer. Get ready to be on your feet, as the intoxicating salsa vibes from the live Latino-band will have you dancing all night
