WATCH: Warner Bros. Drops Trailer For New Musical ‘In The Heights’

 

The creator of Hamilton and the director behind Crazy Rich Asians have come together to create one fantastical cinematic event, ‘where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big… In The Heights’.

 

 

The upcoming musical centres around the tight-knit yet vibrant community of Washington Heights, ‘where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies’ the inhabitants. At the centre of it all is Usnavi, a bodega owner portrayed by Anthony Ramos, who saves every penny from his daily grind in hopes of a better life.

 

 

The movie fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s music with director Jon M. Chu to capture a world of its place which remains universal in its experience.

 

 

As for the cast, In The Heights stars Anthony Ramos alongside Corey Hawkins, Leslie Grace, Melissa Barerra, Olga Merediz, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Gregory Diaz IV, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco, and Jimmy Smits.

 

 

In The Heights is also based on the screenplay by Quiara Alegria Hudes, whilst the musical stage play, music, and lyrics are all composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda who, alongside Hudes, Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman, and Mara Jacobs, produced the film.

 

 

The movie was filmed in New York on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights and will be released on June 11th.
