Appeal: The Musical

A NEW AMERICAN MUSICAL OF MEXICAN DESCENT

Book and Lyrics by Amparo Garcia-Crow 
Music and additional lyrics by Arthur Shane

APPEAL (formerly workshopped as ‘The Unknown Soldier’) explores the life and times of Texas’ Gus Garcia, a Mexican American lawyer who fought for racial equality from the 1930s to 1960s. 
The show usese the carpa, or tent show, to theatricalize Garcia’s struggles, strengths and weaknesses. A cast of actors, singers, dancers and acrobats tell the story through circus-style acts and carpa inspired sketches.
