PRLog - May 5, 2014 - WESTWOOD, Calif. -- In a wild fantasia that upends our national mythology, sleep-deprived Juan José is a Mexican national seeking legal status in the U.S. As he crams for the next day's citizenship exam, the American heroes in his handbooks come alive in a series of hallucinogenic vignettes. With the comic genius of Culture Clash behind the wheel, American Night careens through history, uncovering a portrait of our nation's rise from colony to superpower. All performances will be recorded live in front of an audience (without sets or costumes) to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) and can be streamed on demand.
