Center Theatre Group will host six Community Conversations for “Zoot Suit,” which returns to the Mark Taper Forum to celebrate Center Theatre Group’s 50th Anniversary. This series of panel conversations on selected nights throughout the run will be open to the public and feature local thought leaders in dialogue about the context, issues and ideas finding voice on our stages.
“Zoot Suit” began previews January 31, opens February 12 and runs through March 19, 2017 (extending one week from the originally announced closing date). Written and directed by Luis Valdez, “Zoot Suit” is presented in association with El Teatro Campesino.
“The Community Conversations are that moment when we ask people in our community to help us make relevant the themes and ideas that are alive on our stage,” said Leslie K. Johnson, Center Theatre Group’s Director of Social Strategy, Innovation and Impact. “Asking thought leaders to come and spark that conversation is exciting. By inviting them into the room, we are able to hear someone who lives these topics every day discuss them in the context of the show.”
RSVPs for the Community Conversations are encouraged. For more information, please visit www.CenterTheatreGroup.org/ZootSuitCommunity.
Please note an RSVP to a Community Conversation does not include a ticket to a performance of “Zoot Suit.”
