Gateway: Coming to America

Thursday, February 9, 2023

Gateway: Coming to America is the story of immigrants who made the harrowing journey to a place they’d only heard about - dreamed about: America.

Set in 1907, Phil Martin plays Wilhelm Brenner, an apprentice at a print shop from Grindelwald, Switzerland, who gives up                             everything he has for the dream of a better life in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Along the way, he meets Rosa Milazzo, a young Italian girl headed to Des Moines, Iowa, to marry a friend of her father’s,           Jacob and Rebecca Jenofski, Russian Jews escaping the pogroms, Hans Jurgenson from Germany, a boy with a heart of an artist but a body that is broken, and many more. Touching and humorous, Phil demonstrates his great skill at storytelling, weaving all these stories together in a moving tribute to some of the people that made this great country.
