On Stage Now

It's 1988.

In the shadow of Dodger Stadium, two men arrive in the U.S. with big dreams... but no documents.

24th STreet Theatre's latest contribution to the Los Angeles stage is a bilingual, humorous journey in search of what it means to be "American." With a love of baseball, Tia Victoria's salsa recipe and the help of a talking truck, two cousins work day and night to make their taco truck the "Uncle Sam" of mobile restaurants. Will a contest to be "the most American food truck" at Dodger Stadium on the 4th of July prove to Immigration, Naturalization and Customs that they truly belong?

Appropriate for ages 8 and up

In Spanish & English with supertitles

Written by Leon Martell, commissioned by 24th STreet

Directed by Debbie Devine

Featuring Jesús Castaños-Chima, Tony Duran and Davitt Felder

a beautiful blend of the Spanish and English languages, an ode to our Los Angelean way of life that is proudly, inextricably intertwined with Mexican culture.
— Dana Martin, Stage Raw Top Ten
REMARKABLE… The performances are entrancing, and the set is clever and fun
