OMG I'm so looking forward to this! I've talking about this for the past month and I really need to do a post about this. In The Heights is going to be a movie!!! Wahahahaha god I'm such a Broadway geek.
So okay we all know that a lot of Broadway musicals are being adapted into films like Hairspray and Mamma Mia! And Universal has announced that it gonna be releasing the movie version of In The Heights next year.
Of course none of you guys heard of In The Heights (Damn you uncultured Malaysians!) So In The Heights is a musical by a brilliant guy named Lin-Manuel Miranda, who played the main character. It's about the struggles and life of a latino community living in the barrio of Washington Heights, which is in New York I think.... And instead of mostly singing, this musical goes one up and does some of it's numbers in raps.
I saw snippets of their musical on youtube, and I soooo wanna watch it live one day! I really really urge you guys to start getting hyped up for this movie. Don't worry most of their songs are very modern and up tempo so you won't get falsettoed to death. Hope the Broadway cast will be in the movie.
