I haven't seen "The Mission" yet, but I've caught other shows and benefits they've done, enough so that I could hear C.C. talking in my head as I read through the script. Weird. Lalo Guerrero's song "No Chicanos on TV" pretty much summarizes what this play is about and how desperate out-of-work actors can get, in this case kidnapping Julio Iglesias for their 15 minutes of fame. There's also some irreverent stuff (I didn't say irrelevant) about Father Junipero Serra.
"A Bowl of Beings" premiered at the Los Angeles Theatre Center in July 1991; it was the first time I saw them. I watched "Bowl" on PBS the following March and saw it yet again that October at Univ. of Calif., San Diego. My favorite part of the show is "Chicano on the Storm," where Richard is stuck in a straitjacket vomiting his multicultural nightmare.
"Radio Mambo," created from videotaped interviews with Miami residents, made me fall back in love with C.C. Their tremendous talents as performers were spotlighted as they had to go beyond the parameters of their usual stock characters. I caught "Mambo" at South Coast Rep's Second Stage in July 1996. The intimate setting worked for the play. It's a show whose power is in the close up--of the performer and the performed.
I found this book at the library and for the brief moments I had laughed and enjoyed it, so I went and purchased it as a gift for a friend.
I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone. I enjoyed it even more because I am a Bay Area girl and get piqued when I read any book that has the city I live in or ones I know as a back drop, so that was an added treat. But this is a great, intelligent book with serious messages interlacted within the pages.
