Remember when Zoot Suit leapt onto our stage? 
Here’s another vibrant, musical work by Luis Valdez, an icon in Chicano theater.
Mixing drama and humor, corridos are both musical ballads and storytelling sketches, based on Mexican folk traditions. A musical play by Luis Valdez, Corridos! follows the heroes and history of the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920. The original production, presented by Valdez’s El Teatro Campesino in San Juan Bautista, won eleven Bay Area Theater Critics Awards, including Best Musical. The Western Stage’s production pays tribute to Valdez and El Teatro Campesino as his company marks its 50th anniversary.
“Mr. Valdez has a reputation as a cultural provocateur.”  –The New York Times
Produced by special arrangements with Luis Valdez and El Teatro Campesino.
