'57 Chevy

 

Partner: Ric Salinas

 

To support the presentation of ’57 CHEVY, a solo performance piece MACLA co-commissioned for Ricardo Salinas based on a script by Cris Franco, a popular stand-up comedian and award-winning television writer and playwright.  ’57 CHEVY is the autobiographical story of a young man’s journey in the back of his father’s baby blue 1957 Chevy—traversing physical and cultural borders, beginning from Mexico City to the United States and later from culturally diverse South Central Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley, where the family faces the challenges of being the only Mexican family in a predominantly Anglo community during the 1960s.
