Before “Hamilton” became a global musical phenomenon, before Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name, a little show called “In the Heights” shook up Broadway with its hip-hop and salsa soundtrack and big, bilingual heart.
In the new book “In the Heights: Finding Home,” Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegria Hudes and Jeremy McCarter tell the story of the show’s humble beginnings, from rehearsals in a bookstore basement to the Broadway smash (and a feature film to be released on June 11 in theaters and on HBO) that created an unbreakable community and a new kind of family for everyone involved.
On Tuesday, June 15, at 8 p.m., join Miranda, Hudes, and McCarter for a special “In the Heights Virtual Book Launch” hosted by BookHampton on Zoom. Sure to be an unforgettable conversation on creativity, community and finding home, this is a chance to hear directly from the creative team behind the timeless story of how one neighborhood — Washington Heights — can speak to the world.
A ticket includes admission to the Zoom event and a hardcover copy of “In the Heights: Finding Home” ($40 retail price). Visit bookhampton.com for details.
