“the Tony Award for best composer … was the perfect confirmation of In the Heights’ groundbreaker status as the cool hip-hop and salsa musical that would upend Broadway stalwarts and make theatre relevant to young people. And thanks to its setting in New York City’s Washington Heights neighbourhood, which is home to a predominantly Dominican-American population, In the Heights put stories and communities in the spotlight that had largely been missing from the stage.” –The Georgia Straight
“People who love old school theatre are going to find things they love in this show. People who love hip-hop are going to find things they love in this show. People who love salsa and dance are going to find things in this show they love. It’s just so universal…. It’s all about the community.” -performer Luc Roderique in The Province
