In her review of the film, TheWraps Monica Castillo wrote that in Broadway history, there have been only a handful of musicals that center on U.S. Latinos, and only a fraction of those shows were written by people from the communities they were portraying on stage. Thats part of the reason why Lin-Manuel Mirandas In the Heights made waves when it opened on Broadway back in 2008 (after a successful Off-Broadway run). More than a decade later, and after a bit of a delay due to the pandemic, Jon M. Chus cinematic adaptation of Mirandas first musical promises to make an even bigger splash with its celebration of family, love, and the idea of home.
Analysts and rival distribution execs have pointed to In the Heights as having a great formula for a post-COVID summer title. Its vibrant depiction of Latino immigrant culture, combined with actors and filmmakers of color in the credits, is expected to bring in a diverse array of moviegoers while its upbeat vibe and bright musical numbers promise a respite from the misery of the pandemic everybody loves singing and dancing on the big screen. A poll of 1,300 moviegoers by Fandango revealed that 96% plan to make In The Heights their first trip to theaters since the COVID-19 shutdown.
