Detour Guide

Co-Produced with Stage Left Theatre

This one-man musical takes us on an alternative tour of the Arab World & Arab America. Using lyrics, percussion & an urban soundscape, Karim Nagi guides us through a social and political labyrinth, extolling the virtues of revolution, immigration, and hummus along the way.
