    Immigrants, the Musical: No Place Like Home

    This is a Hamilton-inspired show in which, each week, a new monologist tells of their experience in coming from Mexico, from Russia, from Vietnam, from El Salvador, and more. Then the cast, directed by Lahari Dunn and Asaf Ronen, expands these stories into "fully improvised musicals, giving life to the emotion, the journey, and the laughs and hardships along the way." Note: The Chronicle's Robert Faires recently took in a show, and here's his reaction. Featured this final week: Marcia Sanchez from Mexico.
    Through Dec. 21. Fridays, 8pm. $10-12.
