It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. With book by Wesleyan's Shapiro Distinguished Professor of Writing and Theater Quiara Alegria Hudes, 'In the Heights' is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for 'Best Musical,' 'Best Original Score' (Lin-Manuel Miranda, Theater '02), 'Best Choreography,' and 'Best Orchestrations' (Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman, Music '02). The Wesleyan production is a collaboration between the Music Department and Theater Department, directed by Associate Professor of Theater Claudia Tatinge Nascimento, with music direction by Adjunct Assistant Professor of Music Nadya Potemkina.
