The American Dream: a Story of Two Crazy Broke Asians is a musical revue, following the journey of two young women, in a search for happiness - and for themselves. Yanzi, a hopeless romantic, is following her love from Taiwan to New York City, where she reconnects with her old friend Grace, who is struggling with life in the big Apple as she tries to tough it out on her own. Featuring songs from Disney, Kiss me Kate, Wicked, Cabaret, City of Angels, Annie Get Your Gun and more, follow our heroes in their search of happiness, purpose, and donuts. Will they live The American Dream?

The American Dream: a Story of Two Crazy Broke Asians is produced by Maya Avisar Productions and supported by the Alliance of Alien Artists, an organization founded to empower and support international performers in the pursuit of their career in the Unites States.
