THEATER REVIEW: San Diego Rep's “Zoot Suit” woven with fine threads

San Diego Repertory Theatre opens its 37th year with its most spectacular production to date: Luis Valdez’s 1978 Chicano classic “Zoot Suit.”

Cast your mind back to the early 1940s, when the world was at war in Europe and Japan, and Americans back home were dancing the swing and listening to Duke Ellington.

In Los Angeles, the problem for Chicanos was assimilation rather than immigration, illustrated by this line that now provokes audience titters: “I’m taking my wife and kids and moving to Arizona.”

THEATER REVIEW: “Divine Rivalry” pits Michelangelo vs. da Vinci

Spending a couple of hours in the company of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci is my idea of heaven.

And I’d pay more than a few shekels to watch Machiavelli (yes, that one, before “The Prince”) manipulating both of those artists and his boss Piero Soderini, head of the Republic of Florence.

What a quartet! Two artists who have nothing good to say about each other, the man who understood political power better than anyone and the ruler of Florence. These are the elements of a fascinating theatrical pas de quatre.
