Went to Sunday evening preview. Show was excellent. Great dancing and strong acting. The show ran 2 hours and 45 minutes with a 15 minute intermission, and kept our attention the entire time!

The show was amazing. My husband & I can't stop talking about the talented actors and dancers. The play is very thought provoking; made me laugh & cry. This is THE show to see this summer.

As always the Lyceum had a great show. This play was well acted and directed and loved the music and dancing. Great history lesson from a different perspective!

Description

It’s Los Angeles, Calif., the years 1942 to 1943. The war in the Pacific is in full gear, American big band music has young people at home dancing up a storm and the Zoot Suit is the uniform of choice for Chicano gangs on the streets of Los Angeles. One August morning a young Chicano boy is found bloody and beaten by the side of a road near a county reservoir. His death leads to the indictment of a local Chicano gang and the infamous Sleepy Lagoon Murder Trial, a kangaroo court fanned by media hysteria. When the verdict is announced the Zoot Suit riots begin, and the mythical mystical figure of El Pachuco is born.

_Please note: This play contains drug references, adult language and subject matter, fog, haze, strobe lights and cigarette smoking. It is recommended for ages 12 and older. _
