Los Otros: World-Premiere Musical Tells a Southern California Story
Mark Taper Forum (Los Angeles, CA)
Center Theatre Group’s innovative new chamber musical explores the Southern California experience over the course of several decades through the eyes of a Mexican-American man growing up in Carlsbad and a San Diego woman whose chance encounters with Mexican immigrants mark the moments that define her life. Directed by multiple Tony-nominee Graciela Daniele, Los Otros stars Tony-winner Michelle Pawk (Hollywood Arms, Hairspray, Cabaret) and Broadway veteran Julio Monge (Twelfth Night, The Capeman, Fosse). Another pair of acclaimed Tony nominees, Ellen Fitzhugh (Paper Moon, Grind) and Michael John LaChiusa (The Wild Party), crafted the book, lyrics and score, highlighted by its intimate song cycles.
