A musical inspired by the early life of Cesar Chavez, Between Dirt & Sky fuses the epic events of the American farm labor movement with the personal struggles of those who lived it. Set on the cusp of great change and social upheaval, Between Dirt & Sky is a topically relevant story that offers insight into issues of immigration, race relations, gender equality, workers’ rights and class polarization. It also celebrates and explores the psyche of a uniquely American leader. It is a story of one man’s journey from victim to activist.
