The musical that started it all...
Hamilton is making the waves in Broadway these days, but In the Heights was the first Broadway production that showcased the unique style of Lin-Manuel Miranda, writer of the show currently taking Broadway (and the country) by storm...HAMILTON.
At it's heart, In the Heights is a story of change coming to a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood. It's a community full of hopes, dreams and pressure and where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions to take with you and which you leave behind.

Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire
Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig.
"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...."
And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical TYA is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure that brings all the beloved characters from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears!
