Teatro News from LA to San Anto, UNAM-LA

Michael Sedano

L.A. gente have no idea how rich the local teatro marketplace has grown. With Casa 0101, Los Angeles Theater Center, and the Mark Taper Forum all within a few miles of one another, and dozens of 99-seat houses spread across the basin from Silver Lake to Westwood, the pickings are generous.

The Taper announced it has extended the extension of Zoot Suit, now through April 2. It’s a hot ticket but you can get them. Less so at Casa 0101 Theater, where its March 18 – April 16 run of “Chicanas, Cholas y Chisme's Su Frida Calo” is sold out.

LATC opens The Cruise, original work by Jonathan Ceniceroz, for previews March 10, the full run concluding April 9. Here's a link for ticketing and more information.

From San Antonio TX, La Bloga friend Gregg Barrios sends news about his new Tennessee Williams play, Seven Card Stud, that opens on March 3 at The Overtime Theater. This is Barrios’ second work examining the relationship between Pancho Rodriguez and Williams.

Not everything is rosy in SanAnto for Overtime Theatre enthusiasts. Barrios alerts to a link from the San Antonio Current detailing the teatro’s relocating to more affordable housing and its history of relocation and perseverance.

Latinopia picked up La Bloga’s review of Zoot Suit as part of Latinopia’s extensive pachuco and zoot suit coverage. Latinopia continues to serve as a key resource for video and text information about Chicanas Chicanos. Coverage dates from el movimiento to the current day.
