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.
