“L.A. Times Theater that matters
June 6, 2004
How an L.A. Times article on Latino theater in Los Angeles could omit the work of the nation’s top Chicano/ Latino theater troupe and its landmark work, “Chavez Ravine,” at the Mark Taper Forum is confounding (“It’s Still All Work, No Play,” May 23). Culture Clash should be a Los Angeles treasure. If [Ricardo Montalban Foundation head] Jerry Velasco and [playwright-director] Luis Valdez had seen “Chavez Ravine” at the Mark Taper Forum, they would have seen a theater troupe in touch with its audience, a troupe and a theater in touch with their city and the building of that city that is L.A. “Chavez Ravine” was that rare Chicano play that transcended “Latino theater” while maintaining its barrio worldview.”
