Additional Notes:
Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd is given an opportunity to lead his beloved Washington Senators to victory by a devilish gent named Applegate. Boyd is transformed into the handsome young "Shoeless" Joe Hardy from Hannibal, Mo. He becomes the Senators' star player, transforming them into a winning team but for the price of his immortal soul; he isn't terribly worried, however, since he built an escape clause into his contract with Applegate. To see that Joe doesn't get a chance to exercise that clause, Applegate sends his luscious assistant Lola to seduce the ballplayer. This effort doesn't work, but Applegate still continues to try to cause Joe to lose his chance at salvation. If Hardy can win the deciding pennant game, he'll be able to foil Applegate's master plan of causing the Senators to lose. With Lola's aid, Joe gives the devil more than his due.

The HRT will open its 2015-16 season with Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical theatre masterwork, IN THE HEIGHTS. The cast of 20 will bring this eclectic score to life in a bold new expressionistic interpretation. The environmental seating arrangement will transfix the audience as the young and energetic cast sings and dances throughout four separate performance areas in the newly renovated Tato Laviera Theatre – often a few feet away from the audience. IN THE HEIGHTS won the 2008 Tony awards for BEST MUSICAL and BEST ORIGINAL SCORE. Charles Isherwood wrote in his New York Times review:When this musical erupts in one of its expressions of collective joy, the energy it gives off could light up the George Washington Bridge for a year or two.
