Theatre at St. Clement's presents this new musical about the trials and tribulations of immigration. More…
Han, a South Korean starving artist living in Harlem, is fighting for his chance at the American Dream. Trouble is, he's not an American citizen. After meeting Mia, a spunky aspiring singer with skeletons to hide, they come up with a mutually beneficial plan: a fake marriage that earns her money and him a green card. But will Han’s girlfriend, Mia’s criminal ex-boyfriend, and a suspicious immigration officer derail their scheme?
See it if you'll enjoy a new musical with (mostly) good actors and singers. It's a bit derivative & could use some editing. Still, an impressive debut
Don't see it if You aren't willing to put up with a show that needs a little work and/or you are very anti illegal immigration.
See it if you don't mind seeing a show that is really still a work in progress. It needs a decent amount of rewriting but the bones are there.
Don't see it if you only see want to a completely finished, professional show.
See it if You like fun interesting venues. You are looking for a new musical. If you can relate to needing to obtain a visa or green card in the US

Don't see it if Tired of immigration problems and Trump jokes; Never saw a musical in its early stages of performance Impatient with a meandering storyline
See it if like musical theatre, and understand that singing requires both voice and acting, which may be improved with practice as this show goes on
Don't see it if judge musical theatre by Broadway standards
See it if Great singing in a comedy of trying to not get deported with a fake marriage. Really want to support younger Asian American artists.
Don't see it if Plot barely makes sense. Ok songs but the cast does have a lot of enthusiasm.
See it if you enjoy a dramatized (almost like TV romantic comedies) slice-of-life musical from immigrant perspectives
Don't see it if you have expectations for a stellar production with a thought-provoking storyline.
See it if I was impressed by the singing of the two leads. The concept of the story is interesting.
Don't see it if Due to technical difficulties and thick accents, I missed some of the dialogue. Ensemble members didn't add much to show. Work in progress.
See it if you have time to kill. Had moments that were good, but this is overshadowed by bad acting and dance numbers. Has potential with many changes
Don't see it if expecting a fine tuned show. Some actors and singers were decent, while others felt like you were watching a highschool production.
See it if you want to see a musical really addressing immigrant experiences in a nuanced way, and don't mind that the show itself needs a ton of edits
Don't see it if you do not like seeing works-in-progress that have uneven character development, confusing songs, bizarre choreography, and too many actors.
See it if Good story & Music. Needs tons of work. Book:7.5/Music:8/Lyrics:4.5 Acting:6.5/Singing:5.5 Why 20 people onstage at all times?
Don't see it if Every idea thrown in. Needs crazy editing. Embarrassing Choreography Lyrics don't sound proper English: Baffling/Confusing/Unintelligible.
See it if The story & concept are good but execution is not great. The cast has nice energy. Intimate scenes play out better than the bigger ones
Don't see it if Choreography & direction need lots of work. The ensemble dancing&blocking is distracting & cringworthy. Act2 better than Act1 (way to long)
See it if you want to see an original new musical in its early stages of development. Go see if you feel connected to immigration issues.
Don't see it if you do not enjoy a typical love story. The choreography is a tad cringe-worthy along with some unmemorable songs.
See it if You're interested in something off off Broadway, and discovering young talent.
Don't see it if You're looking for the intense Broadway NYC has to offer. The theater is old and simple, and the show is alright.
