National tour set to launch in the fall

Broadway tuner “In the Heights” is heading out on the road, with a national tour set to launch in the fall in Tampa, Fla.

Other stops include Atlanta; Pittsburgh; Houston and Austin, Texas; Tempe, Ariz.; and San Diego. Traveling production is currently booked through August 2010.

Musical, about life in an upper Manhattan neighborhood, picked up four Tonys last year, including the top tuner prize and one for creator-star Lin-Manuel Miranda’s score.

Broadway incarnation of “Heights” has been playing at the Richard Rodgers Theater since February 2008. Tour perfs kick off in Tampa Oct. 27.
