Before Lin-Manuel Miranda hit it big — really, really big — with “Hamilton,” he had another Broadway hit with “In the Heights,” about the northern Manhattan neighborhood near where he grew up.

The musical, which won a Grammy Award for best musical show album and four 2008 Tony Awards including best musical, had previously played in Seattle in 2010 as part of a national tour.

Later this year, Seattle Repertory Theatre will present a new production of “In the Heights” as part of its 2018-19 season. This new production is in association with Milwaukee Repertory Theater and Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park.
