Welcome to America: A Caribbean Musical | Saturday, October 28 {video}

Overview:

Welcome To America tells the story of Sabrina Barnes, a talented, unsophisticated, and ambitious young woman from the Caribbean, who leaves her home behind and arrives in America with big dreams and her determination to become a star.  She soon learns, however, that her island naiveté and the harsh realities of her newly adopted country may put both her goals and her future in great jeopardy.

“Welcome to America: A Caribbean Musical is a refreshing take on an old narrative. The story of the immigrant in modern day USA is belly-laugh-funny, deeply sad, and incredibly inspiring. The dialogue is quick witted and spot on for New Yorkers. The songs are both new and familiar and they break open the hard edge reputation of New York City residents to reveal the collage of small towns we all come from: Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Trinidadian, etc. In the end, we are neighbors, trying to make a living, make sense of family, find love and seek joy while we muddle stylishly along,” Staceyann Chin – Tony Award winning poet, activist, and author of The Other Side of Paradise.

Award winning singer, actor and producer, Andrew Clarke plays the role of Elijah, Sabrina’s longtime friend and possible romantic interest who encounters his own obstacles in his pursuit of his American entertainment career. A graduate of the Edna Manley College for the Performing Arts in Jamaica, Clarke’s previous credits include In Arabia We’d All Be Kings at the Shadowbox Theater, Girl Without Wings at the IATI Theater and Fences at the Jamaica Performing Arts Centre.

Andrew Clarke and Dominique Allen Lawson played lead roles in the glowingly received World Premiere performances of Welcome To America in New York in April 2017. The two singer/actors lead a multi talented ensemble from across the Caribbean Diaspora for the shows, which were resoundingly successful.

Described by its creators as a universal story of hope and aspiration, Welcome to America explores the assimilation of a newly-arrived, undocumented Caribbean immigrant in the United States, and the complex pursuit of the American dream.

Major credits go to the production team listed below:

  • Book- Karl O’Brian Williams
  • Music – Andrew Clarke & Joel Edwards
  • Lyrics – Andrew Clarke & Karl O’Brian Williams
