Quotes & Highlights
“A deeply satisfying new musical, with much on its mind.” —New York Times
“A lovely and loving evening of theater. Harelik’s story is tender and touching.” —Hollywood Reporter
“A funny new play by a new U S A playwright. The scenes evoke the rural era with the firm-handed clarity of a Jewish Horton Foote…they glow.” —USA Today
A touching and uplifting true story that follows a young Jewish man who, fleeing the oppression of Czarist Russia in 1909, winds up pushing his banana cart into the tiny Baptist town of Hamilton, Texas. Given shelter by a childless older couple, he sends for his wife, raises a family, and makes the tiny Texas town his home.
This unlikely story of “blooming where you’re planted” is based on the life of Harelik’s grandfather, a champion of the movement to relocate immigrating Eastern European Jews away from the Eastern seaboard cities toward the labor-hungry, open West—a program that brought nearly 10,000 people to America through Galveston, Texas. The Immigrant is a tale of parents and children, newcomers and natives, Christians and Jews, and the realization that the dreams that bind us together are often the same.
