Two musicals on the way

A Variety article indicates that Universal Pictures has acquired the movie rights for *In the Heights* and *Wicked.*
Lin-Manuel Miranda (pictured) created a musical story, with book by one-time Pulitzer finalist Quiara Alegria Hudes -- about a guy in a multiethnic neighborhood in Brooklyn's Washington Heights neighborhood who wins the lottery but then decides that staying home is more attractive than moving somewhere else to live large.

Washington Heights is in Manhattan, not Brooklyn.
Also, Usnavy doesn't win the lottery, Abuela Claudia does, and it's not just somewhere else but to the country from which he emigrated.

This comes of not taking the time to fact-check. I KNEW I was being sloppy. Sorry, and thanks.
