A brilliant retelling of the controversial life and death of Tiburcio Vasquez. Was Tiburcio Vasquez a notorious thief or a hero? Or a womanizing crook with a flair for self-promotion? This play is a stunning biography, a thumping melodrama, a political epic and a musical satire by the contemporary theatre icon Luis Valdez (Zoot Suit, Corridos! Tales of Passion and Revolution, and many others). Through the use of story and music, Valdez deconstructs our stereotypes of the bandido, showing how forces from outside continually push and pull at this almost Hamlet-like character. Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm. Tickets and info: westernstage.com/tickets
