Immigration and undocumented residents are very much in the news these days. So are issues like mental health and suicide. Each is addressed in the season-opening production, “Miss You Like Hell” at the Fox Theater in Aurora. A musical written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes, the play tells the story of Beatriz, an undocumented immigrant, who arrives in Philadelphia to convince her estranged daughter, Olivia, to join her on a cross country road trip to California. Along with their story, there are also the people they meet along the way as they drive across America.
