A struggle that is greatly influencing and impacting the people of this nation today: GREEN CARD – A New Musical is bringing a new and refreshing perspective of the trials and tribulations of immigration to its awaiting audiences.
Han, a South Korean born failing artist living in Harlem is fighting for his chance at the American Dream; only he isn’t an American citizen. After meeting Mia, a spunky aspiring singer with her own skeletons to hide, they both come up with an ultimatum – the exchange of money for a fake marriage to help Han gain his citizenship. Along this crazy ride, Han and Mia are followed by Han’s South Korean girlfriend, Mia’s criminal ex-boyfriend, and the suspicious Immigration officer who refuses to leave them alone.
Asia Bridge Contents and Dimo Kim Musical Theatre Factory present Green Card: A New Musical, directed by Dimo Hyun Jun Kim with musical direction by TekGoo Kang. Written by Dimo Hyun Jun Kim and Ishmael Robinson, with music by Bryan Michaels and TaeHo Park. The new musical which produced by Soo Ro Kim and Jin Choi, will be staged at Theatre St. Clements 423 W. 46th Street, New York City opening August 12th for a limited three-week run, ending Sunday August 28th.

Alongside him, and making her Off-Broadway debut is Daniela Benítez, as Mia, a soon-to-be graduate at AMDA (American Musical and Dramatic Academy); a newcomer who will take the theater district by storm. Playing Han's girlfriend, Kim, is the very talented Yonji Ham, who has already left her mark in South Korea with a spectacular performance as Scarlett O'hara in Gone With the Wind, and Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar at the Charlotte Theatre.
