WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Inspired by the true story of a Princeton Undergrad who was an illegal immigrant, and got a Rhodes scholarship to study Ancient Literature. The Statue of Liberty is revamping her image. Manuel wants to be a teacher. Thrown into the ring, they fight it out – who is more American? What is American anyway? Latin music and American pop, rock, and gospel infuse the score. No one is spared in this zany political comedy that pulls no punches (pun intended) about immigration.
