Event Description

The songbook of Grammy Award winners David Hidalgo and Louie Pérez of Los Lobos drives “Evangeline, the Queen of Make-Believe,” a multimedia play with music that takes its title from the group’s 1985 rocker “Evangeline.” Evangeline...a devoted daughter by day, a Hollywood go-go dancer by night. A journey of self discovery by a young Chicana, whose neighborhood roots and make-believe world collide when she experiences the West Side art scene and the music of the Sunset Strip, is set against the 1968 student walkouts in East L.A. and the fight for equal education and civil rights. Songs written by Hidalgo and Pérez are drawn from their 40-year catalogue, marking the first time the songbook will be part of an original production. Songs including “Good Morning, Aztlán,” “River of Fools,” “The Neighborhood” and “Revolution” will be played live on stage by East L.A. band Ollin with featured vocals by CAVA (Claudia Gonzalez-Tenorio). May 3-27; Bootleg Theater, 2220 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, 90057; $22-$32; 213-389-3856; www.AboutPD.org
