The Immigrant: A New Musical by Mark Harelik


Don’t miss this limited-run performance produced by the American Monarch Theatre Company, in celebration of the Sigal Museum's new Destination: Northampton County exhibition.

Lauded by The New York Times as “A deeply satisfying musical, with much on its mind about history, humanity, man and God, and the American Dream. It beckons to theatergoers with a taste for rich characters in a tale that touches the heart, glows with humor and soothes the ear.”

Based on the real experiences of a Russian-Jewish emigrant, The Immigrant tells the story Haskell Harelik, who arrives at the port of Galveston, Texas in 1909 seeking refuge from his homeland. He finds compassion and friendship from an unlikely couple, falls in love, and creates a life for his family in pursuit of the American dream.

The Saturday, November 16 performance runs from 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. The Sunday, November 17 performance runs from 2 - 4 p.m. This matinee performance will be followed by a talk-back with the actors and director.

This performance is sponsored by the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium, with generous support provided by a grant to Lafayette College from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
