What happens at the intersection of Big Mama Thornton and Lydia Mendoza? The late Poet Master Revolutionary Gil Scott-Heron said that there are at least 500 shades of the blues, so there must be the brown bluesafter all, we have corridos and boleros to remind us we can’t be in love unless we’re miserable.

Chicanos Sing the Blues chronicles a fictitious Chicano blues man who finds himself at a crossroads. It is the story of urban music influenced by African American rhythmsand of amazing performers and cultural messiahs —  An original  play steeped in a blues tradition rich with the textures and rhythms of the Chicano experience: corridos, rancheras, heartbreaking huapangos, doo wop and Motown all find their way into the Chicano Blues Sound.

This Su Teatro production (the fourth original Su Teatro production this season) is a new collaboration between Tony Garcia and Daniel Valdez — the team who brought you El Sol Que Tu Eres and El Louie. Valdez brilliantly curates and directs a musical panorama that will move you and Garcia brings you the humor, satire and truth that you’ve come to expect from him.  Don’t miss a truly memorable, exciting and satisfying theatrical experience.


The play runs for two weekends only – don’t miss out!
