based on the play The Immigrant: A Hamilton Family Album by Mark Harelik

The true story of Haskell Harelik, a young Russian Jew who instead of passing through Ellis Island, enters through Galveston and struggles to assimilate into a rural community in Texas. Commonly referred to as the 'Galveston Movement,' Harelik's story begins like so many others in 1909, peddling a pushcart full of bananas and wares - but his fate is changed forever when he asks Milton, a small-town banker, and his Southern Baptist wife for a drink of water from their well. Harelik's compelling story of opportunity, success and the challenges of educating a new community is the essence of the American experience.

BWW Interviews: Sarah Knapp and Steven M. Alper Revisit Chamberlain
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jun 23, 2014

I sat there alone on the storied crest, till the sun went down as it did before over the misty hills, and the darkness crept up the slopes, till from all earthly sight I was buried as with those before. But oh, what radiant companionship rose around, what steadfast ranks of power, what bearing of heroic souls. Oh, the glory that beamed through those days and nights. Nobody will ever know it here! - I am sorry most of all for that! The proud young valor that rose above the mortal, and then at last was mortal after all.... When she read these lines written by Civil War hero and Maine Legend Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain more than eighteen years ago, lyricist/ book writer Sarah Knapp became convinced that she and her husband composer Steven M. Alper had to write their 'memory play.' The musical, commissioned by Charles Abbott, then Artistic Director of Maine State Music Theatre, became one of the greatest successes in the company's history, selling out before it even opened - ('it was the only show where they were scalping tickets on the lawn,' Knapp recalls). Now almost two decades later, Chamberlain A Civil War Romance will receive its first new production since that world premiere in 1996, once again at the Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick, the hometown of Chamberlain and his wife Fannie. Speaking with the composer and writer just days before the opening, they shared their palpable excitement at the prospect of this revival. (more...)

He manages to escape to the US, but while entering California on a valid visa, he is detained on immigration charges and placed under custody. The US Government believes that he is a terrorist. This book by Shah Peerally is an attempt to address the issues regarding US immigration law and its flaws. In fact, it reflects the sentiments of several immigrants who had to go through the difficult process.

Author Angie Manning Edusei Exposes Immigrants' Mistaken Mindset in New Book "Lost Crossing BroadWay: 40 Survival Lessons for the Wise Immigrant
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2014

When she found out that the frustrations, hardships and difficulties of settling as an immigrant were not unique to her but was the experience of many other immigrants like herself, Angie Manning Edusei decided to publish her first self-help book for immigrants. Little did she know that not only immigrants, but citizens of host territories and those who have never traveled would also benefit from her work. In this book, Edusei seems breathlessly in pursuit of 'happy' but not for herself as she embraces the entire global community of immigrants, who are constantly changing themselves in this pursuit to fit into a new society while all the time assimilating at the risk of losing their own identity. The book's full title 'Lost Crossing BroadWay: 40 Survival Lessons for the Wise Immigrant' encapsulates the challenges of the author's own experiences when she chose to uproot her family from Jamaica seven years ago, to live in the United States. Edusei believes her book, which is based on some of her own experiences, is The Immigrant's guide to achieving stability and success. (more...)
