Friends Friday Films: "In the Heights"

Register to guarantee a seat at this in-person event. This event will not be live-streamed or recorded. 

Before taking the world by storm with "Hamilton," Lin-Manuel Miranda made his big debut with In the Heights, taking home four Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score back in 2008. This year finally saw the release of a film adaptation of  Miranda's love letter to Washington Heights. Usnavi is a bodega owner who longs to go back to his native Dominican Republic. In the meantime, he pines after Vanessa and looks after Abuela Claudia, the elderly neighbor who raised him. Everything changes one day when Usnavi's childhood friend Nina comes back from college with a secret, and Abuela Claudia wins the lottery. Come join us for a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration of music and community!
