    Wondering if anyone knows if In the Heights might be available to stream in spring, 2021. With the film version anticipated to open in June, my guess is no.
    Thank you!

    Lin-Manuel Miranda is BIG into Educational Outreach.  For Hamilton, he made sure that there was an active & expansive Educational Outreach/Accessibility component.  Lin-Manuel is the son of a community activist and from what I've witnessed as a member of the NYC theater community, Lin-Manuel walks the walk.
    I would bet that if you wrote him directly and asked your question re: In the Heights, you will receive an answer.  Of course, yours will be one of many emails, but I have a strong hunch that you will get a response.
    Here's the contact page of his website:
    Best,

    I'm pleased to confirm that we've been able to approve many virtual performance and digital rights requests, depending on the title and individual circumstance. We have an FAQ on our website about digital/virtual requests that I recommend checking out: https://help.concordtheatricals.com/section/virtual-performances-and-digital-rights/

     

    We also have lists of plays (https://www.concordtheatricals.com/perform/catalog?catalogId=2704) and musicals (https://www.concordtheatricals.com/perform/catalog?catalogId=2705) with blanket approval for livestreaming, and a list of titles where we've already confirmed that digital/virtual rights are unavaialble (https://help.concordtheatricals.com/knowledgebase/are-virtual-performances-and-or-digital-rights-available-for-all-titles/).

     

    If a title you're interested in (like IN THE HEIGHTS) is not on these lists, that does NOT mean that streaming is unavailable, just that requests for that title are being handled on a case-by-case basis and we're unable to give you a firm yes or no without more information. We're seeing both approvals and denials depending on the title and situation, so please don't hesitate to ask!

     

    If you do NOT have an approved license request for the title you're interested in, please submit a license request online and answer either the Virtual Performance or Live Stream/Digital Rights sections at the end of the application. Once we receive your application we will run the request by the rightsholders and see if it can be approved. Submitting a request online does not lock you into the production –it simply serves as an inquiry which allows us to forward all pertinent information to the rightsholders.

     

    If you DO have an approved license request, please email K12@concordtheatricals.com with the specific license request numbers and I'll be happy to see if this is something we can add to your request.

     

    For clarification, virtual performances are online only, with no performances in a theatre for a live audience. Virtual performances may be readings or off-book performances, and may be audio-visual or audio only. Digital rights involve additional permissions in conjunction with traditional in-theater performances, including the livestreaming of performances and/or the recording of performances for digital distribution to audiences. We recommend submitting applications as far in advance as possible, as digital/virtual rights requests often require additional clearances and we want to make sure we're able to accommodate your timeline. Now more than ever, we need to make sure everything is approved before you start production.

     

    We do not require a specific streaming service or platform, though we do require that any approved streaming or video sharing is protected via password or only accessible by ticket holders.
