On Sunday afternoon Mel and I were determined to find theater tickets.  So, we first entered into the lottery for Wicked but lost.  We were slightly dissapointed, but it was cool because we ended up getting great seats in the back of the orchestra for half price at In The Heights.  In The Heights was the 2008 Tony winner for best musical, and it was so much fun.  

in-the-heights-3The story focuses on a block in Washington Heights, NY (Harlem?) were a bunch of different stories intwine regarding their ethnic backgrounds.  Some of the show is actually in Spanish…super cool.  What the show is best known for is its funky hip hop dancing and singing.  Some of the rap songs were just awesome.  This was actually one of the first shows I have seen in a while that actually had a great cast that could all sing.  

I recommend this for anyone who is interested in theater and specifically for people who are new to theater.  Young audiences will love this show… 4/5 stars.

 

Below is my favorite number from the show…this was the performance last year the Tony’s.
