Americano! shines a light on the true DREAMer experience

By Mirtle Peña-Calderon | People

¡Americano!, a musical based on the life of Tony Valdovinos, will be opening its doors on May 1.

The off-Broadway show brings a musical spin to Valdovinos’ story, which began the day he walked into a Marine Corps recruitment office to pursue his life-long dream of serving his country in a post-9/11 world.

Unfortunately for Valdovinos, he was unable to enlist due to one simple fact that had been kept from him his whole life—he was an undocumented immigrant, a DREAMer.

¡Americano! first premiered at The Phoenix Theatre Company in Arizona in 2020, and will now be making waves at the New World Stages in New York City.

Despite not being able to join the armed forces, Valdovinos learned a very special and important lesson through his journey of self-discovery about how there is more than one way to serve your country.
