In the Heights

Every day, through Aug 10

2015's Hamilton made Lin-Manuel Miranda a household name, but his first major success on Broadway came nearly 10 years before that with In the Heights, which takes place over the course of three days in the largely Dominican neighborhood of Washington Heights, New York. Now, director Jon M. Chu takes the lead on this buzzy film adaptation with a screenplay by the musical's original writer, Quiara Alegría Hudes, starring Anthony Ramos (who also appears in Hamilton) as Usnavi, a bodega owner who serenades the block with big dreams of a better life. Even the mildest musical theater fan doesn't need convincing to queue it up on HBO (or see it in theaters).
