‘Lights up on Washington Heights, up at the break of day…’
We couldn’t be more thrilled to make our first RicNic show announcement of this year: RicNic London will be performing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s unique and moving musical, In the Heights, in summer 2018!
Long before the talented composer was conquering the globe with his sell-out success, Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote In the Heights, which tells the story of a colourful, characterful community in New York’s Washington Heights. At the heart of the show is Usnavi, a bodega owner with big dreams; over the course of three days, he experiences the ups and downs of his neighbours as they pass through his shop. Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical, In the Heights is an exhilarating journey into a tight-knit neighbourhood on the brink of change, set to a diverse and exciting soundtrack.
Boasting a groundbreaking score that combines Latin music, soul and even hip-hop, In the Heights has something for everyone – whether you’re interested in compelling characters; doomed romance; dynamic dancing or an entrancing score. So don’t miss it: make sure you’re in Stockwell in August 2018 and join RicNic London for a vibrant exploration of life, love, and what it means to be ‘home’.
