In The Heights Opens at Paramount Theatre


It’s time! It’s Broadway time! For the next few weeks, downtown Aurora will be filled with energy and excitement – the kind that comes from seeing a world-class musical live, on stage. This week kicks off the start of the run of In the Heights.

Nominated in 2008 for 13 Tony Awards, taking home four including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestration, In the Heights is an exuberant contemporary musical that follows three days in the lives of residents living in New York’s largely Hispanic Washington Heights neighborhood.

Aurora’s Paramount Theatre will launch its third Broadway subscription series this September withthe first local professional staging of In the Heights, one of Broadway’s most acclaimed contemporary musicals, a potent reminder of the importance of chasing one’s dreams, and the show all of Chicago will be talking about this fall. Performances are September 11 through October 6, 2013.

 For as little as $73.80, subscribers can purchase In the Heights plus three Tony Award-winning best musicals at the Paramount in 2013-14 – Miss Saigon (directed by Jim Corti, October 30-November 24, 2013), 42nd Street (directed by Rachel Rockwell, January 15-February 9, 2014) and Rent (directed byJim Corti, March 12-April 6, 2014).
