CHICAGO — On Tuesday, the man we know best for writing and starring in “Hamilton: The Musical” Lin-Manuel Miranda chatted with Dean.
Before his award-winning story of the Founding Fathers, Miranda found major success with his musical story of life in New York’s vibrant Washington Heights neighborhood — its culture, its music and especially its proud people searching for a better life for themselves.
“In the Heights” became a stage classic but became one of the first movies shelved at the beginning of pandemic. Now, after a year-plus, it’s finally being released to the complete joy of the man who created it all.
“In the Heights” opens in theaters and on HBO Max on Friday.
