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

We had side orchestra seats and were able to see most of the stage fairly well. The three actors did a reasonably good job with the material. However, the whiteface on one character was very distracting while the other two were dressed normally.

A simple white canvas. A 200,000 francs price tag. The real cost? Decades-long friendships. Enter the world of Yasmina Reza’s Art, where Serge’s purchase of an expensive, abstract painting raises questions about the nature of art and friendship. Set in Paris, the story revolves around three friends who find their previously solid friendship on shaky ground when Serge invests in a new painting. The purchase reveals unsettling secret opinions and conflicting world-views. As their arguments shift from the theoretical to the personal, this Tony Award®-winning comedy examines the pressures friends place on each other – and how different values can transform relationships. From the author of Broadway’s hit play God of Carnage.
