THE FOUR IMMIGRANTS: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL MANGA
July 11-Aug 6
Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto
Book, Music, & Lyrics by Min Kahng
Based on MANGA YONIN SHOSEI by Henry Yoshitaka Kiyama
Translated as THE FOUR IMMIGRANTS MANGA by Frederik L. Schodt
Directed by Leslie Martinson
From a tumultuous earthquake to an exhilarating world’s fair, this broadly comic new musical chronicles the adventures of four endearing Japanese immigrants in a world of possibility and prejudice: turn-of the- twentieth-century San Francisco. Driven by an infectious vaudeville and ragtime score, the quartet pursues their American Dream despite limited options in the land of opportunity. Don’t miss this runaway hit of our 2016 New Works Festival.
THE FOUR IMMIGRANTS runs approximately two hours and thirty minutes with one intermission.
