In the Heights made a splash on Broadway, scoring the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical and winning over audiences with its fresh-faced charm and vibrant music. Now, SpeakEasy Stage Company brings the uplifting musical to Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts. With a brilliant cast, incredible hip-hop dancing and a contemporary Latin-flavored score, In the Heights is an exhilarating journey into the lives of the residents of the Dominican-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City. It's a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythms of three generations of music. Learn More

Not for every taste, to be sure. But yes, it really is an opera—high C's, arias, a bellowing, spear-carrying Valkyrie, and everything else you'd expect at the Met—sung to the hilt by a cast of foul-mouthed, dysfunctional losers, exactly the sort of people who routinely bared their souls on the Springer show. (Unfortunately, the theater's sub-par acoustics and sound system make it difficult to understand some of the libretto.) Kudos to SpeakEasy for mounting this extravagant and controversial production, most of which is very entertaining and thought-provoking but ultimately overwhelmed by its ambition.

- "Brassy, offensive, and hilarious... and I wouldn’t have it any other way." --Boston Herald
- "One of the most refreshingly original and genuinely funny theatrical productions of the young 21st century." --Quincy Patriot Ledger
