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. Opening on Broadway in spring 2008, the musical went on to win five Tony Awards — including Best New Musical. Great Performances follows the cast and creative team as they embark on the greatest adventure of their young careers.
