Written by Emmy-nominee Cheryl Davis
Directed by Melissa Skirball

Presented by Asian American Film Lab, Jennifer Betit Yen, AAFL TV, and Leviathan Lab in association with The Tank.

For two nights only, Broadway and TV/film actors will join together on the stage at The Tank for a thought-provoking and timely live and interactive theatrical performance inspired by Film Lab's national "Immigrants: We Are Them. They Are Us" (IWATTAU) Project.

Written by Emmy-nominee Cheryl Davis and directed by Melissa Skirball, IWATTAU takes a hard look at immigration issues and invites the audience to ponder, dialogue and create constructive solutions to real problems.  

Performances will feature stage and screen veterans Erin Quill (Broadway: Avenue Q, Dave), Jennifer Betit Yen (Creator, IWATTAU Project; Royal Pains, Search Party), Ariel Estrada (Blue Bloods, Bull), and Robert McKay (Oceans 8, The Post), with Nicky Khor, and Film Lab actors Georges Bridges and Mami Kimura.

Each performance will be followed by a talkback with New York City immigration officials and the cast and crew, moderated by CBS-Interactive's Livia Areas.
