Before there was Hamilton, there was In the Heights.

It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights took home four Tonys in 2008, including Best Musical. With this special pre-sale offer, you'll be sure to nab tickets to this high-energy production at Seattle Repertory Theatre.
