musical theatre meme → [3/10] shows → in the heights
Yeah, I’m a streetlight, chillin’ in the heat! I illuminate the stories of the people in the street. Some have happy endings, some are bittersweet. But I know them all and that’s what makes my life complete. We’re home!
although weirdly enough out of all the people i can remember pete interacting with in the show, as far as i can tell, hes only taller than sonny and daniela,, which is weird to think about, he just seems really tall because he literally only stands by tiny tiny sonny
even so! he’s the perfect height,,
the perfect height difference for hugs and forehead kisses,, how lucky we all are
After Daniela says “¡Ay Por favor! Vanessa don’t pretend that Usnavi is your friend, we all know that he looooooves you!” The Piragua guy says “Te cogieron”, wich is the Latino equivalent to a “Turn Down For What” (the literal translation is “She fucked you up”).
So yeah, the piraguero swears and swears like a sailor.
Turns out in Mexico “Te cogieron” means something completly different that it does on Puerto Rico (in P.R It means “Busted”) ¿Netaaa? I Didn’t know that Te Cogieron means a different thing in different countries. Turns out that again, something really normal in a country can mean something really dirty in other (just like Straw or Seashell).
Yeah, some say I got the hood sanitized
They only scandalized, they ain’t never seen Hispanic guys
Without smackin’ their wives or packin’ knives,
Or havin’ real lives. I went online just to analyze
The rate of crime up in Washington Heights?
Yo the crime rate’s twice as high on the Upper East Side
[No!] Yeah! That shit was astoundin’ to me. I ain’t
Never seen no slangin’ or bangin’ in Woody Allen movies
Do me a favor, set the beef to the side
Is it alright for me to rep my people with pride?
Kids to see Latinos in a positive light?
For tourists to ride up to Washington Heights
Without lockin’ they car doors tight? Maybe buyin’
A piragua from the guy, you know, the man on the side of
Riverside Drive, and seein’ life through his eyes, he’s just
Like you and I, he’s just tryin’ to get by, he’s just
Tryin’ to move up and out and get in here
