In the Heights

Music & Lyrics by Lin-Manuel MirandaSuzi Recommended
Book by Quiara Alegría Hudes

Conceived by Lin-Manuel Miranda

Directed by Justin Anderson
Musical Direction by Ann-Carol Pence
Choreography by Ricardo Aponte

The duo of Atlanta theatres that brought last season’s smash-hit MEMPHIS partners once again for the Tony Award and Grammy Award-winning IN THE HEIGHTS! Filled with pulsating Caribbean rhythms, vibrant hip-hop and lyrical melodies, this highly-acclaimed musical is a universal story of a Latin community in New York’s Washington Heights. A place where the coffee from Usnavi’s corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the brink of change. Like his community, Usnavi struggles to decide which traditions to keep and which to leave behind, in his search for a place called home.

Lobby Art: Contemporary Latin American Art Group

CONTRAPUNTO is a group of Latino Visual Artists living and working in Atlanta and the surrounding areas for the past 7 years. The group was started by Venezuelan Surrealist Painter Carlos Solis. The current members are Peruvian Surrealist Abstraction Painter Pedro Fuertes, Abstract Mexican Painter Jorge Arcos, Peruvian Artists Dora López and Graciela Nuñez Bedoya, and Venezuelan Tropical Pop Artist Stanley Bermudez.

One of the main missions of the group is to expose people in Georgia to the diversity and talent of Latin Artists. Contrapunto exhibits as a group at a variety of venues such as galleries and art centers as well as their own individual solo efforts. Many of their shows sometimes include guest Latino artists and during opening receptions they often offer typical food and music from the different countries represented.
