Illegal: A New Musical – Community Benefits Fundraising Event
June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Written by Long Island native Skyler Chin, Illegal is a historical fiction, rap-rock musical about some of America’s first “illegal” immigrants—think “Hamilton” meets Bruce Lee.
Inspired by the 1923 detainment and interrogation of Skyler’s grandfather on Angel Island, Illegal confronts the history of anti-Asian prejudice that Skyler’s ancestors experienced during the Chinese Exclusion era and that many still face a century later.
The show’s bold, irreverent characters and upbeat, comedic moments honor the fighting spirit of those who persevered and allowed future Americans to proudly tell their stories.
