About This Show

The Immigrant is a new American musical featuring book by Mark Harelik, lyrics by Sarah Knapp, and music by Steven M. Alper. Tazewell Thompson directs.

The Immigrant is the story of a young Jewish man who flees Czarist Russia in 1909 and pushes his banana cart into the tiny Baptist community of Hamilton, Texas. Given shelter by a local couple, he sends for his wife, raises a family and makes this town his home. The Immigrant is a true story of friendship and assimilation, parents and children, newcomers and natives, Christians and Jews – and the realization of the American Dream.
