In the Heights to close on Broadway January 9th [Oct. 27th, 2010|07:28 pm]
In The Heights on Broadway

In the Heights announced their closing this morning.  Our beloved show will close on January 9th of next year.  At closing, they will have been open for almost three years.

To celebrate their run and say goodbye, I wrote a love letter that turned into a picspam that then turned into a vidspam.

Also, why don't we all take this opportunity to share our favorite In the Heights memories? Comment here or on my journal post and tell the world why you love Heights!

Kyle Beltran makes his Broadway debut on August 19th! [Aug. 2nd, 2010|05:03 pm]
In The Heights on Broadway

(Forgive me for double posting, but it's completely necessary, I swear.)

Kyle Beltran is set to make his Broadway debut in In the Heights alongside Jordin Sparks on the 19th of August.  To celebrate this momentous occasion in Heights history (yeah, I'm being over dramatic) I want to make him a congratulatory book.  I saw him twice when he was in the tour, and his Usnavi was near perfection.  He showed a softer and more vulnerable side to the character that Lin's confident and spaz-tastic Usnavi lacked.

So if anyone reading this has seen Kyle in the show/has seen Kyle in other shows/knows Kyle from school/is just a fan regardless, please help me out!  I want to fill this book with love for him, so if you have any messages, pictures, drawings, poems, song lyrics, quotations, ANYTHING that you think would fit, please send me a message.

(Seriously, even if it's just "Congratulations, you'll be great!" it will still help!)

Thank you in advance!

In the Puppet Heights! [Aug. 1st, 2010|03:41 am]
In The Heights on Broadway

(Give me a minute.  I'm yelling at myself for not finding this comm sooner.)

Anyway, obviously I'm a huge Heights fan.  Love the show to death, seen it four times, introduced four friends to the show, and... okay, that's it, no more Heights-related fours on my part.  Basically, it's my favorite show and I love it lots.  And I love puppets, so I made a couple puppet videos set to songs from In the Heights.


Also, for all I know there's a link in the first post on the comm to the forum, but anyone here on the Heights, AKA the place where the cool kids hang out?  I'm (nombre fresco!) and no, I'm totally not kidding.  That's my username.  It's supposed to be funny.

Hello, Heights fans!

Today I learned about an official ITH website that is giving away free tickets to see the tour to the people who get the most "visits" to their page. Do me a favor and visit mine so that I can get tickets to see it here in San Francisco this month, and then sign up for your own! People don't have to sign up or anything to give you votes, all they have to do is click on the link. :)

♥ Enjoy!

(And while I'm at it, in case any of you haven't seen the video they made for the touring cast, you should go check it out. I think I've watched it about a thousand times now, give or take.)

Hi, all! I know there hasn't been much activity on this comm in awhile, but I just saw In the Heights for the first time last week and absolutely fell in love with it, so I joined and I hope there's still people around who want to discuss the show! I've been listening to the OBCR non-stop since I saw the show...I also got to meet Rick Negron (the current Kevin Rosario) afterward, which was pretty awesome.

Anyhow, I've also made some icons, which I thought I'd share...


You can see the rest over at my graphics/fic journal: As the radio plays old forgotten boleros, I think of the days when the city was mine...

Cast Question [Mar. 8th, 2009|06:25 pm]
In The Heights on Broadway

Hello everyone! I have a quick question!

I'm taking a short trip to Manhattan and Long Island March 21-24, a week before my birthday. The whole point of going is to check out the Long Island college I will probably be attending come fall.  My mom offered to take me to a Sunday matinee of a show for my birthday, and I would love to go see In The Heights. I'm would really prefer to see Christopher as Benny and Mandy as Nina though.

So my question is this, how often do the main characters use their understudies on Sunday matinees?

I'm asking because if it is often, I would rather go to a Saturday night show in the fall when I move out there, and go see a different show this month.

Also, does anyone know how long Christopher and Mandy plan on staying with the show?

Tony Winner Miranda Gets DreamWorks Animation Deal [Mar. 3rd, 2009|06:36 pm]
In The Heights on Broadway


Lights up on Lin-Manuel Miranda — and his new Hollywood deal. The actor-writer who conceived and starred in Broadway's Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights has signed a development deal with DreamWorks Animation.

Read more...Collapse )


I have been looking forward to a project like this since I listened to that one interview way back. I will totally be first in line to see this. Also, I'm going to start using my own pictures for these articles because Playbill.com apparently only has that one.

iPod Auction [Mar. 2nd, 2009|09:18 pm]

iPods with celebrity playlists are being auctioned off for charity, and Lin-Manuel Miranda is on the list! The website doesn't yet say when his number is up, but hey, he's on the same list as Bill Clinton, so that's cool.


Happy bidding!
