21 CHUMP STREET by Lin-Manuel Miranda (In The Heights, Hamilton) is a 14-minute musical based on a true story as reported in the series ‘This American Life’. The show is a cautionary tale of a high school honours student who falls for a cute transfer girl. He goes to great lengths to oblige her request for marijuana in the hopes of winning her affection — only to find out his crush is actually an undercover cop planted in the school to find drug dealers.
The original cast included Anthony Ramos (Hamilton) as Justin, Lindsay Mendez (Carousel, Dogfight) as Naomi, and Lin-Manuel himself as the Narrator.
