City Springs Theatre Company presents Lin-Manuel Miranda’s international hit IN THE HEIGHTS (Oct 21-Nov 6)


Sandy Springs, GA, – City Springs Theatre Company, Atlanta’s home for professional musical theatre, presents In The Heights as its second show of its 2022-2023 PNC Bank SeasonDirected by Broadway’s Natalie Caruncho, this energetic and heart-warming musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Tony®, Pulitzer® and Grammy® award-winning creator of Hamilton, will be presented October 21 – November 6, 2022 in the Byers Theatre at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center (1 Galambos Way, Sandy Springs).

In The Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood, where a bodega owner, Usnavi, dreams of a better life for himself, far away from “the heights.” His friends, his family, and his neighbors have dreams of their own, and when Usnavi’s bodega sells a winning lottery ticket, the entire community finds itself on the brink of change.

In The Heights broke new ground on Broadway in 2008 with its salsa rhythms, Latin pop sounds, and rapped lyrics of the show that helped it quickly win national recognition, winning that year’s Tony® awards for Best Musical, Best Choreography, Best Orchestrations, and Best Score. In The Heights launched Miranda’s meteoric career which includes writing songs for the Disney films MoanaEncanto, and the upcoming The Little Mermaid, as well as directing the acclaimed musical film Tick, Tick, Boom for Netflix.
