Award-Winning Musical In the Heights Available for Free Streaming May 3

The critically acclaimed movie adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In the Heights" will be streaming for free this month, starting May 3!

Directed by Jon M. Chu and based on the musical of the same name by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes, "In the Heights" follows the lives of the residents of the Washington Heights neighborhood in New York City. It's a story about community, family, and chasing the American Dream.

The movie features an all-star cast including Anthony Ramos, Melissa Barrera, Leslie Grace, and Olga Merediz. The musical premiered on Broadway in 2008 and won four Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The movie adaptation was released in 2021 and received critical acclaim for its vibrant energy, impressive choreography, and heartfelt performances.



Starting May 3rd, 2023, TUBI TV, the world's largest free ad-supported streaming service, is offering "In The Heights" for free streaming in the United States and Canada. The movie can be accessed online or through the TUBI TV streaming apps available on various devices.

The movie will be available for free streaming until July 5th, 2023. This gives fans ample time to watch or re-watch this critically acclaimed and beloved movie.

In her Associated Press review, Jocelyn Noveck said: "[The film] directed with unabashed exuberance by Jon M. Chu from a screenplay by Quiara Alegria Hudes, doesn’t seek to reframe American history; it uses Miranda’s rapid-fire wordplay and hybrid of traditional and contemporary styles to tell the story of one community — one intersection, even — through universal experiences, like encroaching gentrification. This updated version also touches on the Dreamers, and a golf reference to Donald Trump has been switched to Tiger Woods. But its main thrust is still the bonds of community, family and home."

The film faced some controversy for the lack of Afro-Latinx representation in the movie, which sparked a larger conversation about colorism in the Latinx community. The film's creators have since acknowledged their missteps and pledged to do better in future projects.
