News   PHOTO CALL: L.A. Engagement of In the Heights, With Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opens
 
Lin-Manuel Miranda recreated his Tony Award-nominated performance as Usnavi in the national tour of the Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights, which began its Los Angeles engagement at the Pantages Theatre on June 22. Opening night was June 23.

Lin-Manuel Miranda — who will also star as Usnavi in the film version of the musical — also conceived the show and wrote its hip-hop, pop and Latin-influenced music and lyrics, winning the Tony Award for Best Score.

The musical is a snapshot of a couple of days in the lives of friends, lovers and family in the changing neighborhood of Washington Heights, where people with roots in the Caribbean feel the pull of two cultures.

The cast also includes Christina Black, Danny Bolero, Rogelio Douglas Jr., Kristina Fernandez, Arielle Jacobs, Rebecca Kritzer, Lexi Lawson, Morgan Matayoshi, Genny Lis Padilla, Ric Salinas, Sabrina Sloan and Shaun Taylor-Corbett.

Here is a look at the opening night:
