Opening Night: Hitting New Heights with Mandy Gonzalez and Javier Muñoz

Friday, September 29, 2023 @ 8:00pm

Mayo Performing Arts Center (MPAC)
100 South Street, Morristown, NJ 07960

The original stars of “Hamilton” and “In the Heights” celebrate the music of today’s greatest composers, including their friends Lin-Manuel Miranda, Stephen Schwartz and other extraordinary songwriters.

Mandy Gonzalez, who most recently starred as Angelica Schuyler in the musical sensation “Hamilton”, had her breakout role as Nina in Miranda’s debut hit, “In the Heights”. She later went on to star in “Wicked” and “Aida” on Broadway, appearing in “Across the Universe” on the big screen, “Quantico” and “Madam Secretary” on the small screen, and performing for symphonies around the world.

She is joined by her friend and former cast-mate Javier Muñoz, who stepped into Miranda’s shoes when he took over the lead role of Usnavi in “In the Heights” and helped develop and eventually star as the titular character of Alexander Hamilton alongside its creator in the blockbuster hit “Hamilton”. Muñoz most recently appeared on the final season of the Netflix hit series, “Shadowhunters”, and starred in the Broadway bound musical “The Devil Wears Prada” written by Elton John.

Together Gonzalez and Muñoz share intimate retellings of stories and songs from their vast careers on stage and their unique up close experiences with some of the industry’s greatest contributors. Be in the room where it happens for the infectious hits from Hamilton and In the Heights, defy gravity with anthems from Wicked, and other songs from the best of Broadway!
