Season One

In The Heights (Part 2)

Picking up where episode 1 left off, episode 2 follows In the Heights from the show’s first workshop to the Off-Broadway and Broadway productions. There was no guarantee that the show — set over a three-day period in the largely Hispanic-American New York City neighborhood of Washington Heights — would move beyond the workshop.  But after a lot of hard work (and some tough decisions), the musical found its way, becoming the most Tony Award-nominated show of 2008 and winning Best New Musical. This helped set the stage for Miranda’s remarkable career, including his stellar success, Hamilton, which debuted in 2015.
