Imagine a world where the only way to gain U.S. citizenship is by competing in a live online game show. Welcome to AMERICAN DREAMS, where each night you, the audience, gets to choose who will become your new neighbor. This playful participatory performance takes place from America's favorite game shows and uses voting, polling, trivia, and more to explore who and what we choose to believe - and how those choices come to shape who we are.
All tickets are being sold through HartBeat Ensemble.
