If you are a fan of the energetic and brilliant Washington Heights production…
You will be aware that the cast changes are quite frequent. With the demanding dance numbers, injuries have been cruel to this cast. On the plus side this has meant that as a regular to the barrio you would have most likely seen the multi-talented cast embody each others roles! This has been exciting and has incited several of the MTAS polls. Several of us have wondered what the final date of the productions end was, as ticket sales originally ended Oct 30th… well we can announce this production has been extended for it’s final time to: 8th January 2017! Another couple of months for us to be amazed in the barrio!
With several of our favourite cast members leaving the barrio for good on September 4th, it’s time they pass the baton on to a new ‘In The Heights Familia’. The production will end with a mixture of the original Southwark cast and some new faces:

“May be tonight is our last night together, however how do you want to face it? Do you really wanna waste it when the end is so close you can taste it” (Usnavi)
Well done and good luck from the MTAS family!
