Welcome To America: A Caribbean Musical, Is A Universal Story Of Hope And Aspiration - Coming Oct 28 @thecaribcurrent @matrixthinker #events

Posted By reallybigparty on Business - Welcome To America tells the story of Sabrina Barnes, a talented, unsophisticated, and ambitious young woman from the Caribbean, who leaves her home behind and arrives in America with big dreams and her determination to become a star.  She soon learns, however, that her island naiveté and the harsh realities of her newly adopted country may put both her goals and her future in great jeopardy.


Award winning singer, actor and producer, Andrew Clarke plays the role of Elijah, Sabrina’s longtime friend and possible romantic interest who encounters his own obstacles in his pursuit of his American entertainment career. A graduate of the Edna Manley College for the Performing Arts in Jamaica, Clarke’s previous credits include In Arabia We’d All Be Kings at the Shadowbox Theater, Girl Without Wings at the IATI Theater and Fences at the Jamaica Performing Arts Centre.

Andrew Clarke and Dominique Allen Lawson played lead roles in the glowingly received World Premiere performances of Welcome To America in New York in April 2017. The two singer/actors lead a multi talented ensemble from across the Caribbean Diaspora for the shows, which were resoundingly successful.

Described by its creators as a universal story of hope and aspiration, Welcome To America explores the assimilation of a newly arrived undocumented Caribbean immigrant in the United States, and the complex pursuit of the American dream.
