In the Heights
Featured Gnomies: Isabel Mendia ’18, Eva Branson ‘18, Cara Washington ‘18, Sara Speller ’19
The winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical, In the Heights tells the hopeful story of the tight-knit community of Washington Heights— first generation college students, hairdressers, bodega owners and more— as they navigate the changing landscape of their neighborhood and the summer heat. A collaboration between Pulitzer prize winners Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes, In the Heights joyously celebrates Latinx heritage, immigrant identities, and black and brown city life.

Men on Boats
Featured Gnomies: Lydia Buonomano ’20, Nurit Chinn ’20, Aliaksandra Tucha ’20, Noah Parnes ‘21
Written by Jaclyn Backhaus and featuring a cast of all female and gender non-conforming actors, Men on Boats tells the true(ish) adventure tale of ten dedicated explorers on a 1869 expedition to chart the Colorado River. Under the guidance of the one-armed Captain Powell, our explorers set their sights on new ground and fight for their lives, determined not to leave anyone behind. Comically self-aware, Men on Boats is an energetic and empowering romp that questions the way we present our shared history.
