Lin Manuel Miranda Wants Weinstein Company To Release 'In The Heights' Rights - CATEGORY Headline Report: TITLE

Quiara Alegria Hudes, the writer behind the book for Tony Award-winning Broadway musical In The Heights, wants The Weinstein Company to sever ties with the show – and >Lin-Manuel Miranda

is co-signing her request.

In the wake of the >Harvey Weinstein

sexual harassment scandal,

Quiara released a statement on Twitter on Thursday (October 12).

“As a woman, I can no longer do business with The Weinstein Company…I hope The Weinstein Company has enough grace, in the wake of these revelations, to respect my stand as a woman, and to allow us to extricate In The Heights from them. In The Heights deserves a fresh start in a studio where I’ll feel safe (as will my actors and collaborators),” she wrote.

Lin-Manuel, who wrote the music and lyrics for the Broadway show, retweeted the statement, adding: “As usual,

Quiara does the prose best. She speaks for us both.”
