A TIMELY NEW MUSICAL
July 12—August 6, 2017

 

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


WORLD PREMIERE

Recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award


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 2 hours, 30 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.
