The creator of Hamilton and the director of Crazy Rich Asians invite you to the event of the summer, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... In the Heights.
Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just
outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and
tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi
(Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings
about a better life.
In the Heights fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.
In the Heights is produced by Miranda and Hudes, together with Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman and Mara Jacobs. David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick served as executive producers.
Behind the camera, Chu is reuniting with his Crazy Rich Asians production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein. He is also collaborating with director of photography Alice Brooks (The Walking Dead) and costume designer Mitchell Travers (Eighth Grade). The choreography is by Christopher Scott, who previously teamed with Chu on the award-winning The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers.
In the Heights was filmed in New York, primarily on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights. Slated for release on June 26, 2020, it will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
