Tony Award-winning musical In The Heights opens to stellar reviews at the King’s Cross Theatre.
Previously staged at the Southwark Theatre in 2014 the critically acclaimed production has once again delighted critics and audiences alike.
The Tony Award-winning musical is a joyously uplifting tale of young love in a community on the brink of change, set in one bustling neighbourhood where everyone knows everybody, and the breeze carries the sweet sounds of three generations of music.
In the Heights is directed by Luke Sheppard with choreography by Drew McOnie, musical supervision by Tom Deering, set design by takis, costume design by Gabriella Slade, lighting design by Howard Hudson and sound design by Gareth Owen.
In The Heights plays from 3 October 2015 until 3 January 2016 at the Kings Cross Theatre.
Average rating score for this production:
“Razor-sharp lyrics and a hugely talented cast make this hip-hop musical about Latino communities on the breadline in New York a feel-good spectacle”
“Drew McOnie’s pulsating choreography ensures that the musical's intertwined love stories are told with racy dynamism”
“Sheppard’s traverse staging brings the audience thrillingly close to the narrow strip of high-octane action” “seductive, hip-swivelling, heart-stopping”
"an evening of giddy musical and dance pleasures" The Stage
