CASTING - IN THE HEIGHTS - FEATURE FILM
UPCOMING WARNER BROS. FILM IS LOOKING
The Tony Award-winning hit musical IN THE HEIGHTS is coming to the big screen! With music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and directed by Jon M. Chu, this lively musical centers around characters in the Latino-American community of bustling Washington Heights in New York City. When the neighborhood's charismatic local bodega owner, and our story's humble narrator, finally decides to fulfill his dream of going to the island his parents called home, his departure will change his beloved block forever. Piraguas and blackouts, coming home and moving out, IN THE HEIGHTS is a beloved musical that submerges us into the vibrant rhythm of the city and uplifts us into the heart of a rich community.

- When making your video, place the camera (iPhone camera is fine, but shoot horizontally!) on a tripod or steady surface. Make sure you are in a well-lit space without a distracting background.
