(Apr. 29, 2024) Publication announcement for Broadway to Bronx collection

It’s official! My essay on the musical and film, In the Heights, which appears in the essay collection, From Broadway to the Bronx: New York City’s History Through Song, is slated to come out on Jul 26, 2024!

The collection, edited by Veronika Keller and Sabrina Mittermeier, is credited with providing a “fascinating and vibrant depiction of New York City in song across a variety of different genres, focusing on Broadway, musical theatre, hip hop, punk, folk, and jazz genres, as well as the work of New York born artists and those who are intimately connected with the city.”

Check out my chapter (#16), which is entitled, “‘North of 96th Street’: Latinx Class Mobility and In the Heights by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes.”
