The Immigrant, an American Musical

book by Mark Harelik, lyrics by Sarah Knapp, music by Steven M. Alper

The show The New York Times calls "a deeply satisfying new musical, with much on its mind about history, humanity, man and God and the American Dream," Newsday calls "real and compelling... emotionally genuine..." and AisleSay calls "a turning point and breakthrough for what the small musical can do, for the subject matter it explores, and for its authors."

The Immigrant, based on the play of the same name, is the story of a young Jewish immigrant who fled the pogroms of Czarist Russia in 1909 and pushed his banana cart into the tiny Baptist community of Hamilton, Texas. Given shelter by a childless older couple, he sent for his wife, raised a family, and made this town his home. A true story of parents and children, newcomers and natives, Christians and Jews, and the realization of the American Dream.

"Mark Harelik's text is based on his same-named play, which was one of the most-produced shows of the early 1990s. Now fashioned into an intimately scaled musical with a cast of four, The Immigrant may well achieve similar success all over again... Altogether, The Immigrant ably and affectionately delivers the goods." - Newark Star-Ledger
