This summer, the stage at The Art House, Wyong, will be transformed into a vibrant Manhattan street corner, as The Art House presents its first all-star musical, In The Heights.
The four-time Tony Award-winning musical, from one of America’s most acclaimed writers and producers, LinManuel Miranda (Moana, Hamilton), comes to Sydney Opera House Concert Hall in midJanuary, but not before an exclusive premiere season at The Art House. In a coup for the Central Coast, not only will The Art House present this salsa-fuelled musical, but leading its all-star cast is Central Coast local and Hi-5 star, Joe Kalou.
In The Heights combines the sounds and rhythms of salsa, soul, hip-hop and merengue with explosive street dance and rap. This revolutionary musical has been a Broadway smash hit since its debut in 2008. Uplifting and energising, In the Heights takes audiences on a journey into the lives of the residents of Washington Heights, a New York City neighbourhood on the brink of change, and in the process, poignantly captures what it means to chase your dreams while staying connected to your community.
The characters of Washington Heights grapple with love, lust, identity and ambition; all the while, the promise of a life-changing lottery ticket hangs in the air. In the Heights will crash land at The Art House from January 10-12, 2019. Tickets are essential and are expected to sell out fast.
