Star Watching: In The Heights

For the second half of this Wednesday's Central Standard, a look at the touring Broadway musical making its last stop in Kansas City.

In the Heights tells the story of the community within a single block of Washington Heights, from the corner bodega with light sweet coffee, to the family-run taxi stand, and to the beauty salon full of gossip and hair gel. The show began as an original musical conceived by Lin-Manuel Miranda during his sophomore year at Wesleyan University, and won 4 Tony Awards in 2008 including Best Musical.
