A crowd-pleasing, contemporary hit about a vibrant neighborhood at a crossroads.
Comments from published critics
‘‘In the Heights pulses to a joyful new beat, and youthfulness has its advantages. It made me think of a much earlier valentine to to a New York neighborhood: Wonderful Town.’’
‘‘One of the most polished and exuberant musicals now on Broadway. If you have any rhythm in your heart you shouldn't miss it!’’
‘‘A groundbreaking 21st-century musical. This extraordinary blend of old and new pushed the sound of Broadway deeper into new territory.’’
‘‘When this musical erupts in one of its expressions of collective joy, the energy it gives off could light up the George Washington Bridge for a year or two.’’
‘‘Blending hip-hop, rap, jazz, pop, salsa and merengue, this buoyant musical also nods reverently to the traditions of the show tune. An uncalculated charmer.’’
