Phoenix Productions Presents: In the Heights @ Count Basie Theatre | Red Bank | New Jersey | United States

Set over the course of three days in Washington Heights, New York City, In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding the traditions you take with you and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights boasts music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda (creator of Hamilton) and is the winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical.

The music was born in the summer of 1969 at the famous “Woodstock Music Festival” in New York. It was when David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash hit the stage, that the face of folk/rock music would be changed forever. Their legacy continued throughout the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today. The harmonious vocals that “Crosby Stills Nash & Young” are so well known for, are heard in every song performed by “CSNsongs”.

Phoenix Productions Presents: The Hunchback of Notre Dame @ Count Basie Theatre
Nov 9 – Nov 14 all-day
Phoenix Productions Presents: The Hunchback of Notre Dame @ Count Basie Theatre

Based on the Victor Hugo novel (author of Les Miserables) and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film’s Academy Award – nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz. Peter Parnell’s new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s Gothic novel. The musical begins as the bells of Notre dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There”, observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
