Charmingly Fun, EMOJILAND Comes to San Jose!

You’re probably not expecting allegories about immigration, politics, mental illness, and the ups and downs of the human condition in a musical called EMOJILAND but Keith Harrison and Laura Schein have created a musical that’s remarkable thoughtful underneath its colorful exterior. 

“FIZZES WITH ROM-COM EFFERVESCENCE …Electric & Big hearted!..Delectabley Silly-Smart!”

~ The New York Times

This pop musical extravaganza proved a big hit off-Broadway, getting great reviews and audience acclaim. Part rom-com, part battle for the soul of a society, this delectably silly and smart show is the color and fun we need.


~ TheatreMania

Emojiland is unassuming: you know there will be lots of laughter, incredible music, but it also catches you off guard with the underlying stories and relationships that unfold right before you.


Emojiland The Musical is an Absolutely Delightful Broadway Experience ~ Comic Years

Emojiland is an electric ensemble piece about a diverse community of archetypes who take one another at face value: a smiling face dealing with depression; a princess who doesn’t want a prince; a skull dying for deletion; a nerd face too smart for his own good; a face with sunglasses who can’t see past his own reflection; and a police officer and construction worker who just want to work together. When a software update threatens to destroy life as they know it, Emojiland faces the most fundamental questions a society — and a heart — can face: Who are we? And who matters?

In the wake of coronavirus, existential dread saturated our collective mindset. But, “who you are is what you do when life hands you a pile of poo.” Even when facing a “virus.” Even if we have to “start again.” We just need to remember that “love is what matters,” because at the end of the day, “it’s just so great to be alive.”
