Arielle Jacobs, who played Nina in the national tour and Broadway productions of In the Heights, will reprise her role in the Westchester Broadway Theatre staging this winter. The presentation of the Tony Award-winning musical will reflect the work of its original Tony-winning choreographer, Andy Blankenbuehler.
Penned by Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, with a libretto by Pulitzer Prize winner Quiara Alegria Hudes, In the Heights will be staged for WBT audiences by John Fanelli. Morgan Marcel will re-create Blankenbuehler's original choreography. Shelton Becton will serve as musical director.
Initial casting also includes FaTye as Benny. In the Heights will run Feb. 7-March 17. Fanelli's Standing Ovation Studios presents the Westchester run.
Additional casting will be announced shortly.
In the Heights earned Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Original Score, as well as Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations (Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman).
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
