“Films take a long time to gestate. But when I read this new script once Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) was attached, Quiara and Lin had found a way to open it up… make it more current."
It was during the summer of 2019 that the cast and crew of In The Heights descended on New York to bring the cinematic adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s celebrated musical to the big screen.
The film is breaking multicutural barriers and celebrated Latino joy, but its creators and critics say it fell short over colorisim.
Movie version of Tony-winning musical gets updated to include references to DACA and the plight of Dreamers.
