In The Heights…GO, GO, GO
It is so great to be back in a movie theater watching movies on a BIG screen, with other people, while munching on popcorn. If you’re ready, we highly recommend Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “In The Heights,” a delight in every way. You can watch on HBO MAX too, but first, you’ll miss Lin-Manuel Miranda’s intro thanking you for coming back to the movie theaters (I cried), and second, this is a movie you will want to watch on a BIG screen.
Here are the first eight minutes of the movie.
The movie is joyous and a love story to New York City. The music and choreography are awesome. And the talent!!! Beautiful, talented, mostly unknows who will not be unknows for long, with fun appearances by Lin-Manuel, Marc Anthony…and Jimmy Smits has a big role. And I loved Dasha Polanco (Orange is the New Black) and Daphne Rubin-Vega who plays the salon owner and was in the original Rent. Just go.
The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
