SUEÑOS, a timely new Latinx musical, follows the contemporary journey, interrelationships, and dynamics of three generations of a Mexican-American family as they confront challenges, make sacrifices, break cycles, and celebrate community in their pursuit of the American Dream. The story follows Ali Viramontes, who navigates a path of paternal expectations, maternal support, and sexual awakening, and while coming of age, questions his church, faces unexpected responsibility, and making momentous decisions that will impact his promising career in music and affect the future of his loved ones.
