Music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. Conceived by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble Performance and Outstanding Choreography, and the Grammy Award for Best Musical
Show Album.

For the month of August, the organic abstract art of Cuban-born Marlon Costa will be featured.  His work has recently been exhibited in the Coconut Grove Art Festival as an “up and coming” local artist.  His work relays in color, composition and emotion; transmitting years of self-taught experimentation with fluid media to show movement and complementing contrasts within his paintings.
