The Immigrant

Sierra Madre Playhouse
87 W Sierra Madre Blvd Sierra Madre

Rural Central Texas, 1909. A young Russian-Jewish immigrant, newly arrived in America through the port of Galveston, pulls his banana cart into the hamlet of Hamilton. Fleeing the vicious pogroms of his homeland, he has sought refuge in the land of the free. Able to speak only Yiddish, alone in the midst of a staunchly Christian community, he is offered shelter. Over the next 30 years, he makes a home and raises a family in this tiny town. THE IMMIGRANT is the story of a young Russian-Jewish couple and the local couple that take them in, as religion meets religion, culture meets culture, fear meets fear, and love meets love. This is the true story of Haskell Harelik, “the Immigrant.”

"...Stuart W. Howard is nuanced and impulsive as the Texas banker. Kaye Kittrell is frankly remarkable as his compassionate wife; she steals your heart in every scene. Sigi Gradwohl starts off almost histrionic as Haskell’s wife, Leah, but builds to a deeply compassionate and memorable portrait of a woman conflicted by assimilation. Adam Lebowitz-Lockard’s title-role portrayal instills the play with its spirit — from the meek, submissive immigrant to a mensch of conviction, his rich journey is always authentic. This story of a life fulfilled in America is definitely worth seeing."
