With his lifelong dream of serving in the military vanishing quickly, Tony must confront his family, his heritage, and a deeply divided country. Featuring a sumptuous original score of new music, ¡Americano! casts a profoundly human light on what it means to be a Dreamer.

¡Americano! runs 2 hours and 20 minutes with one fifteen minute intermission.
