BroadwayWorld - Highly Recommended

"...What makes "Pilgrims Musa & Sheri in the New World" special is the way it enmeshes the theme of cultural diversity within the framework of an-fashioned rom-com. What's more, the play by Egyptian-born American Yussef El Guindi, demonstrates that whether two lovers are very much alike or different, there are likely to be stresses and strains along the way."

"...Beneath differing customs and languages, are people basically the same? Playwright Yussef El Guindi makes a strong case with his unique and endearing romantic comedy Pilgrims Musa & Sheri in the New World. After a chance meeting, a free spirited American waitress and an Egyptian immigrant cab driver forge their own path together, while navigating the rocky shoals of failed relationships and divergent obligations of family and culture. It’s a lovely, brazenly hopeful tale of imperfect souls grasping for new love and purpose in this big American melting pot."
