The Place Where You Started 

Music by Mark Lanz Weiser

Libretto by Amy S. Punt

The Place Where You Started pairs soaring vocal stylings and multi-media projections to explore a unique relationship that crosses economic divides to unite a woman in crisis and a gardener with a ruinous past. It culminates in an ending that showcases the devastating effects of our broken immigration system.
