It won a Tony Award, so yes, dear simpleton OP. It is/was a stage musical.
That's a play where performers frequently sing and dance to music.

This is what is called a film adaptation.

I saw it in the theater. It was like 1970s Sesame Street, only with very boring music. At least Sesame Street had Cookie Monster and Grover. Somebody from American Idol was in it, but I don’t know who because I don’t watch reality tv.

I watched the first hour of In the Heights and gave up. The performances were great, but there was no real story. A girl needs tuition, another wants to move, and a guy is too shy to ask a girl out. That was how it started and that is where it was an hour later. At about an hour in, the story stops cold so characters and fantasize about winning the lottery in another number that halts the action.
No need to go on.
Even without a story a film can have momentum. This one does not.

That’s where I saw it. Critics raved, it was a big hit. I couldn’t even stay conscious - I swear I had petit mal seizures throughout the whole thing because I remember sitting in an uncomfortable theater, looking at my watch and thinking “OMG when is this school play going to end?” If we hadn’t been with another couple I would’ve left my husband in the theater & taken the subway home.
But that’s just me. The rest of the world seemed to love it, giving it raves and talking about the freshness of the music (of which I remember nothing) and the brilliance of LMM. So don’t listen to me. I don’t even watch reality tv. I don’t know the name of any Real Housewives, drag queens, pawnbrokers, or dancing stars. You should watch it & decide for yourself.

They restored the original aqueduct bridge and you walk across to the Bronx also a big skate park. Ft. Tryon and the Cloisters is the best place to meet men of all flavors.

Although I think some of the raps are clever and the dancing was spectacular, I know I'm probably in the minority, but I did not like this musical on stage.
I'm still not quite sure why it rubbed me the wrong way. It's at least partly because I envision "slice of life" pieces being true to the lived experience (and using an art form) of the people being portrayed. Also I found the storyline sort of pedantic (which of course is true of a lot of musicals but this one really doesn't move at all). I can't pinpoint all the exact reasons. I'm just not a fan.
I'll probably watch it though when it is streaming for free somewhere (just to stay up on my pop culture and compare it to the stage version), but there's no way I'd pay to see this.

"Passing Strange" was the far better show and should have won over "In the Heights" (several theater critics said so too at the time) but as you noted, LMM reportedly charmed the voters and so all Stew ended up with was Best Book as a consolation prize.
Speaking of which, I had also heard that Stew's lack of personality didn't help him that season but for what it's worth, a friend and I met him after the show he did in follow-up to "Strange" a few years later (which was not nearly as good) and he was perfectly charming, so perhaps he had learned his lesson.

With the year already halfway over, it's the leading contender for Best Picture and Best Director. I think it has a very good shot at going all the way. Hollywood knows that the Oscars were a huge bust this year, full of pretentious nominees that no one saw or liked. The dismal ratings reflected that. If they don't change course next year, then the Oscars may be permanently done. That's why I expect a real crowd favorite and critical darling like In the Heights to do very well at the next Oscars.
Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony-winning musical is a surefire Oscar contender that lights up the screen with the immigrant experience of the American Dream. The estupendo cast gives the summer's best party a heart that sings and a spirit that soars.

He wrote this in 1999 in his second year of college. You can see that it was first describes as a hip-hop "RENT" but now An entire generation has gone by.
IRL He's the Daniela character, "the one who got out" and went to college and found success but decided to stay in the heights. He still lives on the river in one of the apartments in the movie, he didn't move Tribeca or Brentwood.
ITH has no memorable tune or showstopper, it's the first musical I've seen that I can't recall a single tune. The dancing and music was fantastic and even my fairly humorless husband laughed quite a bit. The characters were very real. Ramos was amazing and loveable.

I enjoyed it and the being in a theater again was ok. I mean periodically I had to be slapped when I started screaming "we're all going to die."
But overall it was all ok.

What did you mean by "We're all going to die?"

r144 In The Heights is the biggest musical to come along in years! It has Oscar written all over it. You should go see In The Heights, it is an experience you will never forget. And you'll definitely want to buy the soundtrack, too. Make sure to tell all your friends about In The Heights, which is now playing on HBO Max and in theaters nationwide.

It's about poor people though isn't it? I don't see those types of films.

Anthony Ramos comes across in interviews as rather too common and vaguely ethnic to be the future superstar of the all-time, as he is already being crowned by the media.

R149 = Miss Tyler Perry, pissed that Anthony Ramos turned her old ass down!

When did Anthony Ramos turn down Tyler Perry? I thought the only one who turned Tyler down - and treated him as if he was a stalker, actually - was Diana Ross?

I tried steaming it on HBO Max through my PS4 but the picture quality kept vacillating. Odd because I stream Disney+ through the same device & those shows are always in HD, same with Netflix & Hulu through my TiVo. I’ll try again tomorrow, I saw about an hour & liked it but the low res killed me.

HBO max has been very wonky tonight it’s not just you

HBO Max has also been wonky for me over the past few days, on multiple devices.

Glad it’s not just me, it did the same thing when I tried watching Conjuring 3 but was way blurrier. ITH would go from HD to almost HD then to low resolution, just not as bad.

HBO's streaming problems started 2 Sundays ago, when Conjuring 3 was released.

Do these people have jobs? Is it always summer and people twerking in the streets?

[quote]Do these people have jobs?
I won't answer that for fear of sounding racist.
|by Anonymous||reply 158||9 hours ago|
Since the entire show is about their jobs, and we see several active workplaces, along with subplots of struggling in college and starting new careers, you wouldn’t sound racist so much as ignorant and stupid.
Which is frequently the same thing.
