In the Heights

Usnavi de la Vega tells children the story of Washington Heights. Owning a bodega, he introduces: Abuela Claudia, the matriarch of the neighborhood who raised him; Kevin Rosario, who runs the taxi company; Kevin's employee Benny; the salon ladies Daniela, Carla, and Cuca; Vanessa, Usnavi's love interest; and his cousin Sonny ("In the Heights").

Alejandro, an attorney and family friend, informs Usnavi his late father's business in the Dominican Republic, which he dreams of reviving, is for sale. Meanwhile, Kevin's daughter Nina returns from Stanford. After seeing Benny ("Benny's Dispatch"), she finds her father, telling him she cannot pay tuition, but he brushes her off, telling her not to worry ("Breathe").
