ABOUT

Harvard College TEATRO! is proud to present In the Heights, a contemporary musical with a rich combination of styles ranging from rap to latin to funk. Set in Washington Heights, a predominately Latinx neighborhood in NYC, this show tells the story of immigrant families creating a home and a community as they watch their barrio become increasingly gentrified. The characters of In the Heights display the challenges and sacrifices borne by older immigrant generations, as well as the expectations that these create in their children as they all try to build a home in a bustling foreign city. With fun, vibrant dance numbers and emotive music, this show is a celebration of Latinx culture and the immigrant experience on which this country is built.
