Tony Award-winning Broadway musical In The Heights opens this week in London on Tuesday 13th October.
The show which is now in previews has just announced that it will be extending its run at the Kings Cross Theatre until Sunday 3 January 2016.
Nominated for thirteen Tony Awards and winning four for Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations, In The Heights is an uplifting and exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan’s most vibrant communities – a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and unforgettable Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.
