This Revival Coincides With Latino Theatre Group’s 30thAnniversary
One of Culture Clash’s, the Chicano performance troupe which consists of writer-comedians Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas, and Herbert Sigüenza, most beloved play, Chavez Ravine will have a revival entitled aptly Chavez Ravine: An L.A. Revival. Set to open February 4, 2015, at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. Previews begin January 27 and performances run through March 1.
For over twenty years Culture Clash has been delivering some of the most important and poignant theatrical performance which make satire their tool to drive home issues that impact U.S. Latinos.
This revisited and reimagined Chavez Ravine is directed by Lisa Peterson (who was at the helm of the world premiere in 2003 at the Mark Taper Forum) and features Culture Clash’s Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas andHerbert Siguenza along with Sabina Zuniga Varela and musicians Vaneza Mari Calderón, Randy Rodarte and Scott Rodarte.
Chavez Ravine has set design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Christopher Acebo, lighting design by José López, sound design by Paul James Prendergast, music direction/arrangements by John Avila and projection design by Jason H. Thompson. The production stage manager is Kirsten Parker.
Energized with new material and music from the Rodarte Brothers, Culture Clash continues to examine the constantly changing landscape of urban Los Angeles, in particular, the potential transformation of a small, tightly knit neighborhood into what was initially to be a low-income housing project, but eventually became Dodger Stadium.
