Blog and In the Heights

Posted by S-OConnor - 1 month ago


Sooo I'm gonna use this news section for the occasional blog style post....


With the recent release of Lin Manuel Miranda's Hamilton to Disney plus and Spielberg's upcoming " West Side Story " Movie Musical on the way, it's the perfect time to talk about the film adaptation of "In the Heights " , to be released on June 18 2021.


For anyone who doesn't know, "In the Heights " was originally a Broadway musical (2008-2011) set in Washington Heights , NYC with music and lyrics by Lin Manuel Miranda and script by Quiara Algeria Hudes . It follows 3 days of the characters lives in their vibrant latino neighbourhood . The plot is full of family drama and big changes. It is narrated by a bodega owner named Usnavi de la Vega . The beautiful score features hip hop , soul and salsa music. The musical was nominated for and won many tony awards including Best Choreography, Best Musical,Best orchestration and Best Original Score (Music and / or lyrics ) written for the theatre.


The new film will feature songs from the original soundtrack along with Lin Manuel Miranda in a minor role. It is directed by Jon M. Chu and the screenplay is by Quaira Algeria Hudes .


Who else can't wait ?!
