The music and lyrics of acclaimed Broadway composer Lin-Manuel Miranda and writings of Quiara Alegria Hudes come to life as the Laredo Theater Guild International (LTGI), in collaboration with Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), presents the Broadway musical sensation, In The Heights.    

The production continues its run through Aug. 5 at TAMIU’s Fine and Performing Arts Center Theater. Performance show times from Thursday through Saturday are at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinee performances will be at 3 p.m. The show opened July 26.

In the Heights tells the story of a vibrant community situated in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood.

At the center of the production, Usnavi De La Vega spends his days looking after Abuela Claudia, pinning after Vanessa, the beautiful girl working at the beauty salon and dreaming of winning the lottery to return to his home in the Dominican Republic. All of this changes after Nina Rosario, a childhood friend of Usnavi’s, returns to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents.

Both their fates become intertwined as they face hurdles that will ultimately test the resolve of their beloved community and their family traditions.
