Reading Response – Latinx Performance and Zoot Suit

Read “Necessary Theatre” and “So Many Stories to Tell” in the Latinx Theatre subfolder, found in the Readings folder, and Luis Valdez’s Zoot Suit. Write a one page response to the following: Why would this have been one of the first Latinx-written/starring plays to make it to Broadway? How does it fit within larger narratives of Latinx theatrical history? What is a potential risk created by the success of Zoot Suit? Each reading response is worth 20 points. 5 points for writing at least one page; 5 points for properly citing and referencing the assigned texts in your response (MLA style and bibliography); 10 points for the quality of your argumentation.
