OVERTURES: Manuel vs. the Statue of Liberty

February 6 - February 7

Event Navigation

MANUEL VS THE STATUE OF LIBERTY
the knockout musical comedy about illegal immigration
a staged reading presented by Overtures

Music & Lyrics: David Davila
Book & Lyrics: Noemi de la Puente

Tuesday, February 6 & Wednesday, February 7
7:00pm

Manuel is as American as College Loans and Taco Salad, but if he wants to go to college himself, he’ll have to risk coming out as an undocumented immigrant. That could be extra tricky now that new immigration reform laws require all so-called-illegal immigrants to fight the Statue of Liberty in a real life high stakes boxing match for their green cards. Is Manuel brave enough or even crazy enough to take on the two-hundred and twenty-five ton mammoth of steel?
