  • Poke Nagomi 342 George Street New Brunswick, NJ 08901 (map)

Russian-Jewish emigrate Haskell Harelik arrives at the port of Galveston, Texas in 1909 seeking refuge from his homeland.  With only his banana cart in tow, Haskell finds compassion and friendship from an unlikely couple, falls in love, and creates a pastoral life for his family.  About The Immigrant, USA Today said “the scenes evoke the rural era with the firm-handed clarity of a Jewish Horton Foote … they glow.”
Cost: just $5 (includes ticket, lunch, and artist talk back)
