Washington Latin’s theater production of In the Heights premiers Thursday, with a show at 7pm, plus a show at 7pm on Friday, and shows Saturday at 2 and 7pm. The play is a story of a close-knit community in Washington Heights. The narrator Usnavi tells about the romantic, financial, and family woes of the community, in a show filled with dance, modern slang, and upbeat music. It premiered in New York in 2006, off-Broadway and eventually went to Broadway. The play, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton fame, tells the story of all aspects of the American Dream, including a family’s hope to be able to pay for expensive private college. The play stars seniors Ned Yarsky, Maggie Dalzell and Tabatha Smith, junior Nate Crystal, freshman Will Geist, and eighth grader Ketan Mampara.
