In the Heights at TCT
From the man who brought the world Hamilton, you will not want to miss Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first full-length show, In the Heights, opening this weekend at the Topeka Civic Theatre.
First conceptualized when Miranda was a sophomore in college, In the Heights is guaranteed to wow audiences with its fresh look at what family is. The four-time Tony-winning musical centers around life in Washington Heights, a tight-knit Dominican-American community in New York. The audience is guided through the lives of three generations who must choose between tradition and their future.
Kick off the opening of this show right and go see it!
