The creator of Hamilton and the director of Crazy Rich Asians take you to bustling Washington Heights, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big. The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi, who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life. The feel good event of the summer, Lin-Manuel Miranda's kinetic music and director Jon M. Chu's lively and authentic eye for storytelling capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.
