The multiple Tony- and Grammy-Award-winning musical "In the Heights" begins its Nashville run tonight at TPAC, with nightly performances through this Sunday. Discounted tickets ($15 off the top two price levels) are available through the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce here, for tonight and tomorrow only.
The promo materials of "In the Heights" describe a "corner bodega" in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood, where the coffee "is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind."
A story about the production in today's Tennessean carries the headline, "In the Heights celebrates immigrant cultures."
"In the Heights" opened off-Broadway in 2007, had a Broadway run from 2008 to January 2011, with an overlapping national tour that started in 2009. The national tour ends in April.
