Before “Hamilton” became a global phenomenon, before Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name, a show called “In the Heights” shook up Broadway with its hip-hop and salsa soundtrack and big, bilingual heart.
In the new book, “In the Heights: Finding Home,” Mr. Miranda, Quiara Alegría Hudes and Jeremy McCarter tell the story of the show’s beginnings from rehearsals in a bookstore basement to the Broadway smash and soon-to-be feature film.
Chaucer’s Books in Santa Barbara is hosting a special “In the Heights” virtual book launch with the authors from 5 to 6 p.m. June 15.
Pre-purchase of a hardcover copy of the book is the admission to this event. Participants will be provided with a Zoom link to the show 48 hours before start time.
For more information, contact Chaucer’s Books at 805-682-6787 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
