Book by Michael Barnard and Jonathan Rosenberg
Music & Lyrics by Carrie Rodriguez
Based on the real life of a present-day “Dreamer,” Americano! explores one man’s pursuit of freedom. When Tony was only two, his parents moved the family from Mexico to the United States to secure a safer, more prosperous future, though they never shared with Tony his place of birth. At the age of 18, he attempted to fulfill a lifelong dream of serving his country by enlisting with the Marines and was shocked when they denied his application due to his status as an undocumented immigrant. In an instant, his entire life changed.
