'Zoot Suit' in Dreamland
Center Theatre Group invites you to attend panel conversations on selected nights that feature local thought-leaders in dialogue about the context, issues and ideas finding voice on our stages.*
For decades, art and politics have been deeply intertwined in Chicano culture in Los Angeles and beyond, from the 1940s era of Zoot Suit and the 1970s, when theatre artist Luis Valdez and visual artist Frank Romero were rising young stars, up through the present. As MOLAA presents Dreamland: A Frank Romero Retrospective, and Center Theatre Group produces Valdez's Zoot Suit, we’re bringing together a panel to celebrate how politics has inspired the work of Valdez, Romero, and other Chicano creators.
Panelists to be announced.
*An RSVP to the Community Conversation does not include admission to the Museum of Latin American Art or a ticket to the performance at the Mark Taper Forum. Existing ticketholders are welcome to join us, but are encouraged to RSVP.
Event included with the cost of museum admission. For more information, visit www.molaa.org or call 562.437.1689.
