About the Show

A new hip-hop musical celebrating the community of Washington Heights made by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Story: Usnavi runs a bodega with the help of his cousin, Sonny, and lusts after Vanessa, who dreams of escaping to the West Village. Meanwhile, Nina Rosario has dropped out of Stanford and seeks solace in the arms of her childhood friend, Benny. When someone wins the lottery, it appears that everyone's dreams might finally come true - but it turns out Washington Heights isn't so easy to leave behind.
