In The Heights will be hip hopping its way to the King’s Cross Theatre next month, but the company seems to have chosen are rather more ecclesiastical setting for its rehearsals.
Praying, however, is unlikely to be needed to secure the hip-hop and Latin-inspired musical’s success. With a quartet of Tony Awards under its belt from Broadway and a string of impressive reviews for its run at Southwark Playhouse, not to mention original London cast members David Bedella, Josie Benson and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt reprising their roles, we’re pretty sure that’s a given.
Judging by the smiles on the faces of some of the cast members caught on camera by photographer Robert Workman as he snuck into rehearsals for the show’s transfer, they already knew that.
The musical tale of one of Manhattan’s most vibrant communities, which explores what it takes to make a living and what it costs to have a dream, will play a four-week season at the venue from 3 October to 1 November.
We don’t mean to preach to the probably-already-converted here, but we’d say it’s probably worth buying a ticket. You can do that through us!
