Kerry Keiko Carnahan and James Seol star in Min Kahng’s “The Four Immigrants: An American Musical Manga.”
TheatreWorks Silicon Valley kicks off its 48th season with the world premiere of “The Four Immigrants: An American Musical Manga.” The play is scheduled to run through Aug. 6 at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto.
Drawn from one of the first graphic novels, the comical musical follows four Japanese immigrants in a world of possibility and prejudice: turn-of-the-20th-century San Francisco. From a tumultuous earthquake to an exhilarating World’s Fair, the immigrants pursue the American dream, despite limited options in the land of opportunity.
