One unique event at the LULAC Convention is the premiere performance of Cincinnati: City of Immigrants which takes place this evening, appropriately enough, at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. The event begins at 7:30pm, and is free and open to the public.

Cincinnati: City of Immigrants was written by critically-acclaimed playwright Joe McDonough. Produced byArtsWave and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the story follows six fictional characters representing the six major waves of ethnic immigrants – German, Irish, African-America, Jewish, Appalachian and Hispanic – to Cincinnati over the past 180 years.

The show will be performed at the theatre on the third floor of the Freedom Center. 

There are four other opportunities to see the show, which includes a dialogue with the cast after each performance. Additional performance dates and locations include:

Friday, July 8th Fairfield Arts Center
Tuesday, July 12 Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati
Wednesday, July 13th Irish Heritage and Cultural Center in Columbia-Tusculum
Thursday, July 14th BLOC Mission in Price Hill

These performances begin at 7:00 p.m. and include time for a post-show community dialogue with the actors. Performances are free and open to the public.
