8:00 PM Stage: In the Heights Patio Playhouse's "Plays in the Park" stages Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony Award-winning musical about a community on the brink of change, "where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which to leave behind." Matt Fitzgerald directs.

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 are always 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. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

8:00 PM Stage: Much Ado About Nothing Everyone can see that confirmed bachelor Benedick and headstrong Beatrice are meant for each other—except for Benedick and Beatrice themselves! While their friends try to trick the bickering pair into admitting they're in love, their young sidekicks Hero and Claudio start a romance of their own. But will false accusations, broken promises, and even a nutty and bumbling police force prevent a happy ending? Three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (the Globe's Love's Labor's Lost) makes her triumphant return as director to our Festival Theatre stage with one of the greatest romantic comedies ever, in a production full of colorful characters, passionate poetry, and Shakespeare's wittiest wordplay.
