What a line up we have for our 8th Season of Live & About! And what better way to kick off the season than with the already sold- out, break-out show by the man who has taken Broadway by storm for his Hamilton, winning accolades from critics and colleagues alike. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights could not be a more timely production for our country in turmoil, and this production sheds light on so many issues that feel of this moment.
These were some of our group’s first emotional impressions: “relatable,” “big tears,” “lots of heart,” “showing us the American dream,” “achieving something specific, it becomes universal,” and “investing in a street corner as community and discovering what is worth keeping,”
Everyone was thrilled by the brilliant choreography and how it kept moving the story telling.
As always, our discussion starts with an interpretive question or two so that we might wrestle with the creator’s intentions.
Please weigh in on these and continue the discussion…
According to this show, does Lin-Manuel Miranda believe that for this community “patiencia y faith” or diligent hard work are more important?
Why does Sonny give his bundle of money to Grafitti Pete to paint the mural of Abuela Claudia?
