Hot Date: Salsa Meets Hip Hop in the Heights

photo by John Daughtry

FEBRUARY 7 TO 19 Toronto gets a dose of hot Latin flavour this month courtesy of In the Heights, a modern musical that honours Broadway traditions. Winner of four Tony Awards—including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography—the production pulls audiences into the story of a Latino community in Manhattan’s Washington Heights district, and how the immigrant residents cope with life’s struggles while holding on to their dreams. Brimming with energetic salsa-meets-hip-hop music and beautifully choreographed dancing, it’s certain to get your head bobbing and feet tapping. Toronto Centre for the Arts, $40 to $135; visit here for more information and tickets.
