A lively and energetic production with very good singing and dancing. Engaging and sensitive portrayal of a NY community striving to move forward. A very enjoyable evening.

Quotes & Highlights

“For the SpeakEasy Stage Company’s current production, a vivacious ensemble creates a community of absolutely irresistible characters, capturing all the life and energy of this Tony Award-winning musical.” -Boston Globe
“The characters are moving (in many senses of the word), and what will really stick with you is the pure energy and joy of the music and dancing in this marvelous production.” —The Arts Fuse
“Director Paul Daigneault captures the essence of the Broadway show, thanks in large part to the performance of Diego Klock-Perez as Usnavi in the role originated by Miranda. His rapping and overall presence provide the focal point of a high-spirited, sexy production. The ensemble work — dancing as well as acting — and the musicianship are pretty much universally the same high caliber as we’ve come to expect from SpeakEasy. Hats off to the whole behind-the-scenes team as well as the actors, with a particular shout-out to costume designer Elisabetta Polito.” -WBUR

Description

The show runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
