The rhythm takes over in “In The Heights,” a Broadway dance spectacular that brings the passion and power of Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood to Village Theatre.
Set in a community where everyone knows your business, things are about to shake up as romances bloom, dreams are challenged and one winning lottery ticket threatens to change everything.
Nominated for 13 Tony awards, winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical and nominated for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, “In The Heights” is a fun and fresh hip-hop musical with an infectious salsa beat.
Two members of the national “In the Heights” touring cast will be a part of this regional production: Perry Young as Usnavi and Kyle Robert Carter as Benny.

Village Theatre continues its passion for creating art with a 2014-2015 season that includes the Bob Fosse classic “Cabaret,” the Disney family favorite “Mary Poppins,” the contemporary Broadway hit “In the Heights,” brand new musical comedy thriller “No Way to Treat a Lady” and a straight play based on the Jules Verne book “Around the World in 80 Days.”
Village Theatre’s own Steve Tomkins will direct “Mary Poppins” and “No Way to Treat a Lady.” The theater will welcome Eric Ankrim (director) and Daniel Cruz (choreographer) for “In the Heights.”
Earlier start times (7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday evenings) launched last season will continue, and four- and three-show subscription packages will be available for purchase just before and just after the holiday season.
