    One thought on “Zoot Suit”

    1. I m not much for watching or especially reading dramatic plays, but this one, an audiotaped version of a live drama, was particularly dreadful I also don t like finding out about history through fiction, but I might go and investigate further the true life events upon which the play is based But the acting and the lines being histrionically uttered were making my skin crawl by the end.

    2. I ve read this play twice this year, and I think its power is undeniable as a social document and as a story of American Chicano identity forged in the face of police brutality, racial profiling, fear of the other, and the backdrop of World War Two I m excited about teaching this for the first time, and Valdez s boldness and visionary construction of the elements of this play feel very prescient and relevant in 2017 America I m excited to see his words resonate with a modern youth audience.

    3. So excited as I m seeing the play tonight Glad I read to understand the Spanish slang which is used in the play.

    4. Aww this was amazing and it happened so close to where I live It s fascinating and powerful and hopeful and everything I love And it s true, well, mostly I m so glad I couldn t find the sparknotes and was forced to actually read this one FULL REVIEW youtube watch v n7oab

    5. This is an incredibly powerful and moving story that sheds light on racial injustice and discrimination against Chicanos in the United States in the 1940 s A triumphant success.

    6. The story itself was excellent, and an important one I just didn t care for the playwright s style in delivering it.

    7. really really excellent work of early chicano theater introduced me to pachuco culture and the zoot suit riots, and the general fear and discrimination mexican americans felt during wwii, even though the country was supposed to be uniting around the war effort, not dividing.

    8. Podr a escribir de qu va la obra pero realmente no la recomiendo para leerla, no creo que se disfrute tanto leyendo como vi ndola representada, y esto es porque la considero una obra dif cil de leer Igual les voy a decir de qu va, Henry Reyna es el l der de la pandilla de la calle 38, todos son pachucos, ya que es una obra que se ambienta en los cuarentas, existe cierto racismo hacia los mexicanos o chicanos, todo empieza cuando los culpan por homicidio en Sleepy Lagoon, mandan a Dela, la novia [...]

    9. This is a story about the problems facing Chicanos in California during World War 2 It is not a very happy story, but it is a very deep story.I liked reading something that switched between English and another language I could read and understand, for once Most of the classics you end up reading as an English major use French, Latin or Russian, if anything, and if you re apparently unlucky enough to know and like Spanish, you never really get the opportunity to use your skills in your chosen fie [...]

    10. Zoot Suit presents a look at a little known slice of L.A history.The play was inspired by the Zoot Suit Riots in 1943 It dramatizes the story of Henry Leyvas named Henry Reyna in the play , a zoot suit wearing Mexican American charged with 21 other Latinos in the so called Sleepy Lagoon murder While Valdez s play follows the facts of the case faithfully, Zoot Suit isn t just the story of racial discrimination and injustice The 1977 play is a statement on Mexican American pride and Chicano identi [...]

    11. Zoot Suit is one of the books that promoted awareness about the racial injustices in the 1990s It was an interesting book because it gave me ideas on how critical was life like for the immigrants back then.

    12. Such an appropriate read for our times This story made me angry especially since nearly 75 years later I question how much progress has been made.Great perspective on Zoot Suit members and who they really were rather than how the media, or police, portrayed them.

    13. This play is unfortunately still relevant Valdez creates a unique forum, set in WWII California, about prejudice, injustice, pride, family, and belonging Even on the page, the direct dialogue and the imaginative stage directions bring this play to life.

    14. B A sound recording of a theater production Story was about some Mexican men who were arrested for something they didn t do and had to face the racial injustice of the time.

    15. First I saw the film, then I read and acted this for my literature class I enjoyed the story a lot I like chicano culture and their Spanglish.
