Something Theatrical

Pay a visit to The Heights

Before there was Hamilton, there was In the Heights.

In the Heights — created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, best known for creating and starring in the Broadway blockbuster Hamilton — is a Tony- and Grammy-winning musical that will be staged by Festival Playhouse of Kalamazoo College May 11–14.

In the Heights is set in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood, a vibrant Dominican-American community on the brink of change. It is seen through the eyes of a young storeowner who watches the joys and heartbreaks of his tight-knit community as they pass through his bodega.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. May 11–13 and 2 p.m. May 14 at the Nelda K. Balch Theatre, 129 Thompson St. Tickets are $15, or $10 for those 65 and older and $5 for students with ID.
