LOS OTROS is an unconventional musical with a masterful interplay of narrative and melody. This unique musical experience follows the intimate song cycles of two Southern California natives a Mexican-American man growing up in Carlsbad and a San Diego native reminiscing of her encounters with the Mexican community. Their stories become our stories: adventurous and romantic, honest and surprising.
Don’t miss the world premiere musical LOS OTROS! Only at the Mark Taper Forum!
Almost everyone, sometime, has felt the sting of being treated like los otros, which means “the others” in Spanish. LOS OTROS is an exploration, through dramatic staging and lushly poetic song cycles, of the common life experiences that bind seemingly unrelated human beings together: wars, love affairs, work, mortality.
“Threads of whimsy and irony are woven throughout…tenderly observant…” --Back Stage
The award-winning creative team of LOS OTROS -- writer-lyricist Ellen Fitzhugh, composer Michael John LaChiusa and director Graciela Daniele -- share and explore common bonds in this new kind of musical featuring Tony Award-winning actress Michelle Pawk (Hollywood Arms) and Julio Monge (The Capeman).
The stories of two individuals span 70 years of Southern California history and track lifetimes as well as cultures. It features a variety of musical influences including a touch of '40s swing music, traditional Mexican mariachi and a bit of Burt Bacharach pop.
