Following performances at New York's iconic Zipper Theatre, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and in more than a dozen cities from Miami to Santa Fe, Dan Guerrero's ¡Gaytino! now comes to Los Angeles. This musical solo show is Guerrero's onstage memoir of sorts, in which he tells of his remarkable life journey from the streets of East L.A. to Broadway, and back west again to Hollywood. A father/son relationship and a treasured boyhood friendship drive this 75-minute autobiographical play through decades of Chicano history and the gay experience from a unique and highly personal perspective. Guerrero brings his two fascinating worlds together in riveting fashion -- from mariachi to Merman, from Sondheim to Chavez. Learn More

In THE ITALIAN IN ME, a doe eyed aspiring actress who has been raised by an Italian grandmother on good old fashioned values and an overabundance of Roman Catholic guilt, moves to Rome, from North America with a lot of unanswered spiritual questions, not much cash, and big dreams of working in Italian Cinema. Once in Rome, she quickly learns that things in the Eternal City are not as “Holy” or as romantic as she had imagined. When everyday life becomes a sexual obstacle course – because everyone’s trying to get into her pants – she does the only thing she knows how to do, pray. Her prayers seem to be answered when she meets up with the “Maestro” Federico Fellini. But, will this encounter turn out to be the “Dolce Vita” she was searching for?
