The intimate musical by the original work's playwright Mark Harelik (libretto), Sarah Knapp (lyrics) and Steven M. Alper (music) features Jacqueline Antaramian, Walter Charles, Adam Heller and Cass Morgan. Performances play Dodger Stages. Randal Myler directs.
Produced by HELLO Entertainment, The Immigrant began preview performances on Oct. 19 and opened Nov. 4. The production will have played 19 previews and 29 performances by closing time.
The play and musical are both inspired by the story of playwright-actor Harelik's grandfather, Haskell, an Eastern European Jew who settled not in the teeming tenements of the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the early 20th century, but in Texas as part of the little-known Galveston Plan for immigration.
In the play, as in life, Haskell was befriended by a banker and his wife, and ending up prospering.
The Immigrant will play its final performances on the following schedule: Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8 PM with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM and Sundays at 3 PM at Dodger Stages. There will be no performance on Nov. 25 and a special matinee has been added 2 PM Nov. 26.
