Ghostlight Records is proud to announce the release of the Original Broadway Cast Album for the critically acclaimed 'In The Heights'. Released as a double-CD, 'In The Heights' features 23 tracks of Latin, Salsa and Hip-Hop-infused music. Conceived and written by emerging superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda the show is about love and dreams, about tradition and hard work, and Miranda, uniquely inhabits the story and the role, as he chronicles three days in the lives of a handful of close-knit residents of Washington Heights.. The show opened on Broadway last week, and The New York Times said "The title song...is among the most galvanizing opening numbers in recent Broadway memory," and added that there was "a sense of excitement almost never heard emanating from a Broadway pit." USA Today noted "Heights already has been cited alongside two other off-Broadway transfers, last season's multiple Tony Award winner 'Spring Awakening' and this year's superb 'Passing Strange', as evidence of a more progressive and culturally eclectic spirit in musical theater."
