In 2008, "In the Heights," a new musical from up-and-coming young artists, electrified Broadway. The show’s vibrant mix of Latin music and hip-hop captured life in Washington Heights, the Latino neighborhood in upper Manhattan. For the film version, director Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) brought the story home, filming its spectacular dance numbers on location in Washington Heights. That’s where Usnavi, Nina and their neighbors chase their dreams and ask a universal question: Where do I belong? Miranda; Jeremy McCarter, co-author of HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION; and Quiara Alegría Hudes, the Pulitzer Prize–winning librettist of the Broadway musical and screenwriter of the film give readers an intimate look at the decades-long creative life of "In the Heights."

Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical "Hamilton" is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation. HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION gives listeners an unprecedented insight into both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it.
