Desperate Measures Presents: In The Heights

From Ariel Lesnick ’15:

“In the Heights” tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood—a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows arealways open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.

Spoiler Alert: This is a regular improv comedy show and has absolutely nothing to do with “In The Heights.” FB EVENT PAGE 

Date: Today
Time: 8:00PM
Place: Nics Lounge
