ZOOT SUIT:

Luis Valdez’s landmark play reaches forward from its first opening in 1978 to educate and entertain a new generation.  This play remains one of the most important shows ever created in Los Angeles. With its searing, candid portrayals of family, conflict, and official malfeasance, it is at the same time topical, trending, and timely. Presenting for the Center Theatre Group’s 50th Anniversary, it has extended its run for the third time since its revival, this time to April 2, 2017.

Zoot Suit became Broadway’s first Chicano play and a major motion picture, which starred now household names as Edward James Olmos, who garnered a Tony Award nomination for best featured actor in a play and a Theatre World award nod.   The music of Lalo Guerrero dominates! Actor/musician Daniel Valdez (you may know him from Richard Pryor’s Which Way Is Up?) returns as music director.

The play is presented in association with El Teatro Campesino. If you don’t speak caló, here is a glossary: https://www.centertheatregroup.org/news-and-blogs/news/2017/january/a-zoot-suit-glossary/
