Warner invites us to start the summer with good vibes and dancing
I confess that when I was given the opportunity to witness the press of ‘In a neighborhood of New York’ was practically unaware of the work of Lin-Manuel Miranda. He heard about another musical of his just a year ago (Hamilton) and it turns out that this man had not one Broadway musical but two. “In the Heights” was the first in 2008 and is the original title of this film. My ignorance seemed like a good way to go with no expectation of seeing it.
I arrive on the day of the pass 2 minutes late. The distribution staff (Warner Bros.) assure me that it hasn’t started yet but I have the impression that they were waiting for me. The thing is, I walk into the room and sit in the first place I see. In a few minutes the show starts, not the projection. Let me explain: suddenly five boys and five girls come out of their seats and give us a little choreography full of energy as they run and dance through the aisles. You have to start with the second one because the music doesn’t go well with the first one, the live show thing. They improvise, they take it with humor and finally they do the performance to warm up the atmosphere. Well, Warner, you did it.
