In the Heights is a musical. Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote its music and lyrics. The story happens during three days. The story mainly happens in the mostly Hispanic-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City.

After a 2005 tryout in Waterford, Connecticut and a 2007 Off-Broadway run, the show opened on Broadway in March 2008. It was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards and won four, including the 2008 Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Choreography awards. A movie version of the musical is planned for release in Summer 2020.
