“In a New York Neighborhood”: Director Talks about the Challenges of Adapting the Broadway Musical

Warner Bros. has released a new behind-the-scenes video for the musical ‘In a Neighborhood of New York’.


The feature will hit national theaters on June 17.

Directed by Jon M. Chu (“Rotten of the Rich”), the feature film is based on an original play created by Lin-Manuel Miranda in 2008.

The lights come on in Washington Heights… The scent of a caffecito caliente floats in the air in front of the 181st Street subway station, where a kaleidoscope of dreams mobilizes this vibrant and tight-knit community. In the midst of it all, we have the dear and magnetic grocery store owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny of his working day while encouraging, imagining and singing about a better life.

The cast also includes Anthony Ramos, Leslie Grace, Corey Hawkins, Melissa Barrera, Jimmy Smits, Olga Merediz, Gregory Diaz, Noah Catala, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco and Marc Anthony.
