GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn -- The world premiere of Theater Latté Da's original musical "Steerage Song," which celebrates the journey of immigrants to America during the height of immigration, will debut at St. Paul's historic Fitzgerald Theater and run June 2-5, 2011.

Created by Artistic Director Peter Rothstein, along with musician and writer Dan Chouinard, the new musical docudrama is premiering in partnership with Minnesota Public Radio. "Steerage Song" will tell a story through music of the journey immigrants took from Europe to America through Ellis Island. 
"For 150 years, immigration has been a volatile discussion in this country. In creating Steerage Song, I hope to chronicle the journey of millions of new Americans through their music which expressed their hopes, sacrifices, pains and joys," said Rothstein.
