We are almost a week away from the highly anticipated release of the film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Tony and Grammy breakout debut musical In The Heights. This new film (directed by Jon M. Chu) was filmed on location in the actual location where the story takes place……. EN WASHINGTON HEIGHTS.

However, it was not the first time IN THE HEIGHTS was shot on location in the BARRIO. When the musical was gearing up for its Broadway debut, Miranda and the original cast filmed a 30 second TV commercial there.. Check out that original promo below featuring…..

Miranda as “Usnavi”,
Tony winner Karen Olivo as “Vanessa”,
Mandy Gonzalez as “Nina Rosario”,
Christopher Jackson as “Benny”,
and more.

The original Broadway production of IN THE HEIGHTS rans at the Richard Rodgers Theatre for a 3 1/2 year run of 29 previews and 1,184 regular performances.
