EVANGELINE, THE QUEEN OF MAKE-BELIEVE

MAY 2012

Co-Prod with About…Prod.

The songbook of Grammy Award winners David Hidalgo and Louie Pérez of Los Lobos drives Evangeline, the Queen of Make-Believe, a multimedia play with music that takes its title from the group’s 1985 rocker “Evangeline.” Evangeline…a devoted daughter by day, a Hollywood go-go dancer by night. A journey of self discovery by a young Chicana, whose neighborhood roots and make-believe world collide when she experiences the West Side art scene and the music of the Sunset Strip, is set against the 1968 student walkouts in East L.A. and the fight for equal education and civil rights.

Featuring the music of David Hidalgo and Louie Perez
