The next great American musical has to start somewhere. So why not Phoenix?
Be part of Arizona history. ¡Americano! is the true story world-premiere musical that follows Tony who must confront his heritage, his family and the only home he has ever known. Inspired by 9/11 but unable to serve in the Marines, Tony decides to serve our country in another way after his dreams are dashed; fighting for the rights of all DREAMers and even electing a Marine to the U.S. Congress. It is an immigration story for these times and all times.
With a sumptuous score of newly created songs by critically-acclaimed musicians Carrie Rodriguez and Sergio Menzoda, the sound and spirit of !Americano! is unlike anything you have heard or experienced. ¡Americano! casts a deeply human light on what it means to be an American - what it means to be a "Dreamer."
¡Americano! hits the stage January 29th to February 23rd at The Phoenix Theatre Company, which is celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year.
