LA Stage Co.'s 'Night' nears end; play closes Sunday at Bus Barn

Los Altos Stage Company’s production of “American Night: The Ballad of Juan José” is scheduled to close Sunday 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 José 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 – ranging from Sacagawea to Teddy Roosevelt and Jackie Robinson – who take him on a mind-bending trip through U.S. history.
