“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.

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