    In The Heights: Chasing Broadway Dreams
    Beginning at a small, off-Broadway theater, a group of talented young artists led by composer-lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda produced an original musical that some have called a modern day West Side Story: a Latin and hip-hop-infused musical odyssey telling the story of a neighborhood and the first-generation Americans who call it home. Many audience members have nothing to compare it to as it represents the first musical that they've journeyed below 125th Street to see. Opening on Broadway in spring 2008, the show went on to win five Tony Awards.
