Nathan Amzi in In The Heights 12.05.2014
Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical, In The Heights is an exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan’s most vibrant communities – 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 struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and incredible Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a groundbreaking 21st century musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.
Directed by Luke Sheppard, this brand new production opens at The Southwark Playhouse this week and features Nathan Amzi as Piragua Guy. Nathan recently stepped back in to the Rock Of Ages tour as Lonny, having first played the role in town.
