About this show

Based on the real-life events of Operación Pedro Pan, this musical follows a boy sent to the US to escape the growing dangers of postrevolutionary Cuba. To survive, Pedro must learn a new language and a new culture — all the while hoping to be reunited with his parents. With a score featuring the percussive rhythms of Havana and 1960s New York soul, Pedro Pan, with a book by Rebecca Aparicio and music and lyrics by Stephen Anthony Elkins, examines what it means to be a displaced immigrant in America.
