"An Immigrant on Broadway"
A TEDxBroadway Talk by Arvind Ethan David
On November 19, 2019, Arvind Ethan David gave a talk as a part of the TEDxBroadway series on what it means to be an immigrant on Broadway. Arvind tells the story of when eight years prior he started two journeys: to bring Alanis Morisette’s Jagged Little Pill to Broadway and to become an American citizen. Arvind tells the story of how the two journeys became intertwined, and how the immigrant imperatives of understanding tribe, money, and power in one's new home can be applied to both journeys. He also gives an immigrant’s perspective on how the Broadway community can become more diverse, tell more stories, and bring more people into the fold.
