Evangeline, the Queen of Make-Believe - The songbook of Grammy Award winners David Hidalgo and Louie Pérez of Los Lobos drives Evangeline, the Queen of Make-Believe, a multimedia play with music that takes its title from the group's 1985 rocker "Evangeline." Evangeline, a devoted daughter by day, a Hollywood go-go dancer by night. A journey of self discovery by a young Chicana, whose neighborhood roots and make-believe world collide when she experiences the West Side art scene and the music of the Sunset Strip, is set against the 1968 student walkouts in East L.A. and the fight for equal education and civil rights. Two performances have been added to Bootleg and About Productions' show, Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2, both at 7 pm.

This production is directed by Theresa Chavez and Rose Portillo and stars Karen Anzoategui, Danielle Barbosa, Daniel Chacón, Jorge Diaz, Catherine Lidstone, Georgia Reed, with musical direction by Scott Rodarte and featuring the Hidalgo/ Pérez songbook played live on stage by the East L.A. band Ollin with featured vocalist CAVA. Video design is by award-winning cinematographer Claudio Rocha.
