In The Heights by Various Artists
Released: Jun 2008
Label: Ghostlight Records
In The Heights is an exuberant slice of new Broadway, the spiritual spawn of Rent but set in Manhattan's Washington Heights, ground zero for Caribbean immigrants. Reviewers swooned from the heat of all the salsa, bachata and hip-hop -- and then fell over themselves in praise. Lin-Manuel Miranda's songs capture the steaming city streets and the glorious jumble of cultures and languages. But in the end, it's the sheer soapy vitality of these characters that'll grab you, as they perch precariously between cultures and work through big questions that translate no matter the idiom.
