A Klezmer/TexMex Listening Party (Celebrating the upcoming stage production of The Immigrant at the Sierra Madre Playhouse)
Told with humor and with important resonances to today, The Immigrant is the biographical story of playwright Mark Harelik’s grandfather, a young Jew 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.
