Ghostlight Records will celebrate the In the Heights three-LP vinyl box set, which commemorates the 10th anniversary of the label's Grammy-winning original cast recording, with an in-store event at Barnes & Noble July 30 at 6:30 PM.
Lin-Manuel Miranda and other members of the original Broadway cast and creative team will sign albums after a discussion and Q&A with journalist Laura Heywood.
Pulitzer Prize winner Miranda will be joined by Janet Dacal, Robin De Jesús, Carlos Gomez, Mandy Gonzalez, Tommy Kail, Alex Lacamoire, Priscilla Lopez, Olga Merediz, Eliseo Roman, Bill Sherman, and Seth Stewart.
In the Heights was conceived by Miranda, with book by Quiara Alegría Hudes, music and lyrics by Miranda, and orchestrations by Lacamoire and Sherman. The show was directed by Kail and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler with Lacamoire serving as music director. A film adaptation is slated to premiere in 2020.
The box set features newly remastered audio, 23 tracks, 90 minutes of music, a booklet with full lyrics, original Broadway show photos, a synopsis, and a liner note from director Kail. An MP3 download card is also included.
The store is located at 33 East 17th Street at Union Square. Priority seating will be offered to customers who purchase the LP box set from Barnes & Noble or online at BN.com. A limited number of wristbands for event access will be distributed at the Union Square store with purchase (or proof of advance purchase) from Barnes & Noble beginning at 9 AM the day of the event.
