For my latinos that don’t know about “In The Heights”, oh man OH MAN
so get this. it’s a musical made by lin-manuel miranda (nominated for 13 tonys, won a grammy, no big deal. this is what launched lin) and its for us. Yeah anyone can enjoy it, but it’s for us. It’s about what our culture specifically goes through completely filled with Reggaeton, Salsa, Merengue, the works. The main thing I love about it is it raises the question of what it means to have a heritage that links back to another country, and what that means for those living in America. Where is home. Is it where your family is from - with your people, or is it where you make it. Just too good, man.
IN THE HEIGHTS IS SO IMPORTANT.
