LA Stage Co.'s 'American Night' enters 2nd week at Bus Barn

Los Altos Stage Company’s production of “American Night: The Ballad of Juan José” opened last week and is set to run through Feb. 17 at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.

Richard Montoya’s fast-paced satire centers on the glories and pratfalls of the American Dream. Mexican immigrant Juan Jose has a feverish dream while studying for his American citizenship exam. His obsession to pass leads him on a fantastical odyssey guided by a handful of unsung citizens who made courageous choices in some of the country’s toughest times. He meets a parade of characters – from Sacagawea to Jackie Robinson – who take him on a mind-bending trip through U.S. history.
