Interview With a Mexican

Oct 5, 2018

Challenging “gabachos” to come out of the closet and ask the obvious, ignorant and sometimes racist questions, wherein they will be met with derision and insult, but also with a tremendous amount of insight and informativeness. The ultimate Chicano nerd has placed his trust in making the transformation of his experiences three-dimensional in the hands of a 46-year veteran of sarcasm and cultural enlightenment.

Based on conversations with Gustavo Arellano author of Ask a Mexican and Taco USA. Adapted for the stage by Anthony J. Garcia
