Oh, que calor! 

Lin-Manuel Miranda is heading to Washington Heights — with a cart in tow. On Friday, the Broadway expert declared he will get on the smaller bit section of Piragüero in the forthcoming motion picture adaptation of his first hit musical, In The Heights. “One final little bit of casting,” he wrote in a tweet, including, “[Rolls piragua cart on set…]” and “See you on set.”

Piragüero also known as “Piragua Guy” is the owner of a smaller piragua (a Puerto Rican shaved ice dessert) stand who Mister Softee is striving to shut down but he retains scraping by on the barrio streets with a range of mango, strawberry, and pineapple ices!

Miranda joins an presently fleshed out cast that consists of Marc Anthony as Sonny’s father and Anthony Ramos as bodega operator Usnavi — a position Miranda himself performed on Broadway — when Straight Outta Compton‘s Corey Hawkins will perform the role of Benny. Gregory Diaz IV will get on the portion of Sonny. Furthermore, Mexican actress and singer Melissa Barerra will engage in Usnavi’s appreciate interest Vanessa, when Leslie Grace will just take on the portion of Nina. Brooklyn Nine-9’s Stephanie Beatriz has been cast in the role of salon worker Carla, while Lease‘s original Mimi Marquez, Daphne Rubin-Vega, will enjoy salon owner (and community gossip) Daniela. Orange is the New Black‘s Dascha Polanco has also joined as Cuca and Jimmy Smits will also be heading to Washington Heights this summer months to participate in Nina’s father, Kevin Rosario.

The film is slated to strike theaters on June 26, 2020.
