Zoot Suit Riot is an exciting theatrical big band party that evokes the spirit of the historical Chicano cultural revolution that shook L.A. in the 1940s. Capturing the post-WWII era's highly-charged, trend-setting swing music, energetic dancing and wildly colorful style, the show features popular songs from '90s swing revivalist bands like Cherry Poppin' Daddies ("Zoot Suit Riot") and Royal Crown Revue ("Hey! Pachuco!"), inspired by the era's combination of outrageously cool style and demands for social change. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“Stomp is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser with a rock-and-roll heart.” —New York Times
“Let’s face the furniture and dance: Fred Astaire would have loved Stomp. Scrappy and scruffy, Stomp makes music that is infectiously percussive. It dares you to sit on your hands.” —New York Newsday
“If you can tap it, bang it, slap it, knock it or just drum your fingers on it, the performers of Stomp can transform it into a remarkably expressive percussion instrument.” —The Village Voice
is a movement of bodies, objects, sounds – even abstract ideas. But what makes it so appealing is that the cast uses everyday objects, but in non-traditional ways. There’s no speech, no dialogue, not even a plot.
The cast is a group of rhythmically gifted, extremely coordinated performers who over the course of the performance compose a symphony using only matchbooks, create a dance routine based around sweeping, turn garbage into instruments, and walk around stage on oil drums.
