Boyle Heights theater showcases Latino love affair with Morrissey


BOYLE HEIGHTS  — Casa 0101 Theater explores young Latinos’ fascination with the British performer Morrissey in a festival called Teatro Moz.

Intimate scenes that have helped define the identities of many Morrissey fans are acted out on stage to the tunes of their favorite songs, says the L.A. Times.

Issues of sexual ambiguity, heartbreak and alienation are explored through eight short plays that were inspired by the music of Morrissey. According to the Times, co-director Michael Patrick Spillers describes the show as “a series of intersections — of LGBT issues, Latino issues, music and more. You will find all of these connections you wouldn’t have thought of.”

Members of L.A. Morrissey tribute bands will be playing their versions of his songs throughout the show. “Teatro Moz” will be showing on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through October 16 at Casa 0101.
