Post Lin-Manuel Miranda's new musical project
In the heights' Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes are working on a new musical based on Chaim Potok's book "My Name is Asher Lev". Miranda obtained the rights last year.

I really look forward to seeing how the show turns out. In the Heights has, in my opinion, one of the greatest modern scores.

I think I just might read the book this show will be based on. It sounds quite good.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the first draft of “In the Heights” while still in college at Wesleyan University, and in 2005 he won the Georgia Holof Lyricist Award at the O’Neil Music Theater Conference. He also has composed music for campaign commercials for Fernando Ferrer and Eliot Spitzer. He is also a member of the hip-hop comedy group Freestyle Love Supreme.
