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." Featured this week: Frank Sánchez from the Dominican Republic.
    Through Dec. 21. Fridays, 8pm. $10-12.
