In the Heights

None
8 p.m., Saturday May 17
In the Heights is a musical about life in Washington Heights, New York: a tight-knit community where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music.  Blending a book steeped in Broadway tradition with a Tony award winning score infused with salsa, rap and hip hop, IN THE HEIGHTS takes on its authentic and exhilarating journey to rediscover family, community and what it means to be home.

The Pollard Theatre Company has assembled a marvelous cast which includes Matthew Alvin Brown*, Cristela Carrizales, Gwendolyn Evans, Ben Hall, Matthew Morales, Lin Sanchez, Tiffany Tuggle Rogers, Aaron Stewart, Jennifer Teel, J. Lamont Thomas, Victoria Trujillo, Stephen Wafer, Ashley Brown, Ashley Cain, Marianne Edwards, Sarah Henry, Kendon Lacey, Austin Morris, Heidi Ravelo, Christopher Shepard, and Timothy Stewart round out the talented cast.  Pollard Artistic Director, W. Jerome Stevenson (AVENUE Q), assisted by Crystal Ecker, Musical Direction by Todd S. Malicoate and Choreographed by Hui Cha Poos helms this rich new production which will feature, scenic design by University of Oklahoma's Jon Young,  costume design by Michael James, property design by Timothy Stewart and sound design by Jared Blount.

Stevenson, who saw the original Broadway production of In The Heights, became a fan of the musical and believes it has the power to bring in a whole new audience to the American Muscial Theatre. “I was so blown away by the original production that I felt we had to bring this story and its unique style to the Pollard.  Lin Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes have created an extraordinary musical experience that tells a very traditional story through a musical tapestry of hip-hop, salsa, soul, R & B, merengue and other contemporary musical styles,” Stevenson explains. “We have assembled what I believe is a remarkably gifted team of theatre artists to introduce this world to our audiences. It's a production that will really appeal to our audience and I can't wait for them to experience In The Heights.”
