SAN DIEGO G&L TIMES
A gay Latino moves from the back of the bus to the front of American pop culture.
The long-touring solo play is now a film and playing the Film Festival circuit to great acclaim. The autobiographical piece of documentary theatre chronicles a remarkable life journey from 1950s East LA to New York’s Great White Way in the 60s and 70s and back to Hollywood. The 75-minute film with music is driven by Dan’s lifelong friendship with late Chicano visual artist Carlos Almaraz and by Dan’s father, late Chicano music legend, Lalo Guerrero. The story travels through decades of Mexican-American/Chicano history and the gay experience from a unique and personal perspective. Touching, provocative, hilarious and absolutely one-of-a-kind, Dan Guerrero brings his two fascinating worlds together in a riveting solo performance.
