This Revival Marks the Prominent Latino Theatre Group’s 30th Anniversary

Casting is set for powerhouse Latino theatre group Culture Clash’s “Chavez Ravine: An L.A. Revival,” which opens February 4, 2015, at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. Previews begin January 27 and performances run through March 1.

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 and Herbert 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.
