“With the uncertainty in our world, right now, the release of In the Heights is being postponed,” Miranda shared in a letter signed by him, producer and book writer Quiara Alegría Hudes and director Jon M. Chu. “When we can safely gather again, flags in hand, we will be there, enjoying this movie in theaters.”
The letter also recalled the joyous time he and the cast, including Anthony Ramos, Corey Hawkins, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco and Jimmy Smits, had on set in New York City.
“We had the best summer of our lives filming #IntheHeightsMovie last year. We gathered in Washington Heights and told this story, on location in this neighborhood, with our neighbors in our community. We couldn’t wait to share it with you. But we’re going to have to wait a little longer.”
“We’ll have the premiere uptown,” the note continued, ending with “patience & faith.”
