The Song and Swing of 'Zoot Suit'
Center Theatre Group invites you to attend 90-minute pre-show engagement experiences on selected nights that feature local thought-leaders in dialogue about the context, issues and ideas finding voice on our stages.*
The music of the 1940s propels the story and characters of Zoot Suit, and features a blend of swing and boogie-woogie, R&B, jazz, and Chicano big band tunes. Center Theatre Group invites you to dive into this music, learn about Lalo Guerrero—one of the most influential and important Chicano musicians of the 20th century, whose work features prominently in Zoot Suit—and be ready to get on your feet and dance!
*An RSVP to the Community Conversation does not include a ticket to the performance at the Mark Taper Forum. Existing ticketholders are welcome to join us, but are encouraged to RSVP.
