NYMF: Pedro Pan


What a treat it was to revisit Pedro Pan. Based on the real-life events of Operación Pedro Pan, a young boy is sent to the U.S. to escape the growing dangers of post-revolutionary Cuba. To survive, Pedro must learn a new language and a new culture – while hoping to someday be reunited with his parents. With a score featuring the percussive rhythms of Havana to '60s New York soul, PEDRO PAN examines what it means to be a displaced immigrant in America.

Destinee Rea returns to her role as Wendy, I young woman who moved from Alabama to begin a new life in desegregated schools.

With music, books, and lyrics by Rebecca Aparicio and Stephen Anthony Elkins and directed by Rachel Stevens.
