Exciting Industry News!

2008 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, "In The Heights", is officially a-go on the silver screen. The director is none other than Kenny Ortega, best known for directing the Michael Jackson doc, "This Is It", and the "High School Musical" series; Ortega also choreographed "Dirty Dancing" (pretty cool, huh?). PLUS, Lin-Manuel Miranda, the show's creator, Tony Award-winning composer and original star, is signed on to reprise his lead role. Very exciting stuff.

If you haven't yet seen "In the Heights" on Broadway, I STRONGLY recommend it. It's a totally unique, exciting theater experience with an energy that is unmistakeably NYC born and bred.

We only need to raise $1,000. That's it! Anyone who contributes $100+ receives 2 tickets to the event.
