Zoot Suit Riot
According to Homies online resource www.homies.tv, which has the 411 on the miniature figurines, the word "chuco" is short for "pachuco," a "low-riding, zoot suit-wearing Chicano from the '40s and '50s." This is relevant because it allows those of us not familiar with postwar Latino slang to better understand the play El Chuco y Le Che, showing at the Latino Cultural Center. The "Che" part probably references Che Guevara, champion of pot-smoking, lazy, pinko-commie, hippie, liberal Northeastern college students. On March 17, the LCC will have low-rider cars out front for the show's opening night, and we all know how those pot-smoking, pinko-commie, liberal Northeastern college students love their dropped Cavaliers. Whoa, dude. Those rims are so pomo. The play runs at the LCC, 2600 Live Oak St., 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through March 25. Tickets are $25 opening night and $10 to $15 other nights. Call 214-946-9499.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8:15 p.m. Starts: March 17. Continues through March 25
