La Bamba

He was a left-handed kid who learned to play a right-handed guitar, a rock-and-roll fan who loved mariachi music, and a budding star whose second hit single, “Donna,” was totally (and unexpectedly) eclipsed by its unusual B-side—a rollicking version of a Mexican folk song that contained not a word of English and zero references to surfing, convertibles, or surfing convertibles. La Bamba, named for that groundbreaking track, tells the story of Ritchie Valens (born Ricardo Esteban Valenzuela Reyes), the world’s first Hispanic rock star.

Valens left high school to make music, and his guitar chops seemed to promise a long, vibrant career in music and a place in pop history, but his life was cut short when he, along with fellow stars Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper, was killed in a plane crash on what became known as “the day the music died.” The musical captures Valens’s brief life with song and dance, a fitting tribute to a young artist whose passion for music dominated his life.

California Theatre of the Performing Arts

A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater’s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
