Beginning at a small, off-Broadway theater, a group of talented young artists led by composer-lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda produced an original musical that some have called a modern day West Side Story: a Latin and hip-hop-infused musical odyssey telling the story of a neighborhood and the first-generation Americans who call it home. Follow the cast and creative team as they embark on the greatest adventure of their young careers.

Watch In the Heights: Chasing Broadway Dreams on Great Performances, tonight at 10pm on WGBH 2.
