Bodegas & Salsa

It’s the hottest day of the summer and Graffiti Pete is up to his tricks, but Usnavi de la Vega ain’t having it. He chases him off and then waxes poetic about the characters in his neighborhood. The play, with book by Quiara Alegria Hudes and music/lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, examines the rewards and costs of living in the less-privileged but deeply vibrant community of NYC’s Washington Heights. The play runs 8 p.m. Aug. 2-11, 2 p.m. Aug. 12 at Players by the Sea, Jax Beach,, $25-$28.
