The plot, as described by IMdb: “All the hot gamblers are in town, and they’re all depending on Nathan Detroit to set up this week’s incarnation of “The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York”; the only problem is, he needs $1000 to get the place. Throw in Sarah Brown, who’s short on sinners at the mission she runs; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan’s $1000 bet that he can’t get Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana; Miss Adelaide, who wants Nathan to marry her; Police Lieutenant Brannigan, who always seems to appear at the wrong time; and the music/lyrics of Frank Loesser, and you’ve got quite a musical. Includes the songs: “Fugue for Tinhorns,” “Luck Be a Lady”, “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat”.”
The movie is 152 minutes and will be shown on Blu-Ray in English with Spanish subtitles.

Maybe we’re powerless, a corner full of foreigners.
Maybe this neighborhood’s changing forever
Maybe tonight is our last night together, however!
How do you wanna face it?
Do you wanna waste it, when the end is so close you can taste it?
Y’all could cry with your head in the sand
I’m a fly this flag that I got in my hand!

Lin Manuel Miranda’s notebook with Tony lyrics in it
Grammy Award-winning lyrics!
On Sept. 23, Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda ’02 spoke about the creation of the musical In The Heights during his time at Wesleyan. His talk, “When You’re Home: A Look Back at the Origins of In the Heights,” was sponsored by the Theater Department and Center for the Arts. n the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood — a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures. The musical is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for “Best Musical,” “Best Original Score” (Miranda ’02), “Best Choreography,” and “Best Orchestrations” (Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman ’02).
Miranda sang a song from a musical he did at Westco Café, some melodies that were cut from the Wes version of In the Heights, and some new songs from his upcoming musical Hamilton at the Public Theater in New York City. He also talked about his theater experiences at Wesleyan and answered questions about writing musicals, the evolution of In the Heights from Wesleyan to off-Broadway to Broadway, acting and performing, composing songs for the Tony Awards, and how to keep the creative juices flowing.
