This is the one we’ve been waiting for: From the mind of Lin-Manuel Miranda and the pen of Quiara Alegría Hudes comes the musical event of the year, the film version of the Broadway hit, In the Heights (2021)
. This is not just the filming of a stage performance, but a separate film production shot on location in the streets of New York, telling the stories of the denizens of the Washington Heights neighborhood in music and dance. Directed by John M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians
), and starring Anthony Ramos, Jimmy Smits, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, In the Heights follows
Usnavi (Ramos) and his dream of one day returning to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. At La Bianca
, Calle 55 497b between 60 and 58. Dinner on your own at 6, movie at 7.
