In The Heights

Transport yourself to New York's Washington Heights, where the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music...

Penrith Musical Comedy Company proudly presents IN THE HEIGHTS. This will be the Sydney Premiere of the Tony award winning Broadway hit, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

This high-energy show features lovable characters, a contemporary Latin-flavoured score and inspiring hip-hop dance moves. But it’s also very sweet and sentimental, wearing its heart on its sleeve. You may even get a little misty-eyed by the end.

In the Heights centres on a variety of characters living in the neighbourhood of Washington Heights, on the northern tip of Manhattan. At the centre of the show is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban lady next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighbouring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Nina, a childhood friend of Usnavi’s, has returned to the neighbourhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close-knit neighbourhood get a dose of what it means to be home.
