Award Winning Musical, In the Heights on Stage May 13

Posted May. 1, 2012

In the Heights, winner of four 2008 Tony Awards and the 2008 Grammy Award for best Musical Show Album, will be performed May 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas.

This smash hit Broadway play tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood - a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. 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. To quote the New York Times: In the Heights is "An exuberant, animated shrine to the importance of family ties and being faithful to where you come from."

Tickets for In the Heights are $45 - $66 and are available now at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at or by calling 330-308-6400. The box office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Free parking is available for all shows. The Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas is located at 330 University Dr. NE, New Philadelphia.
