About American Night: The Ballad of Juan José

As Juan José feverishly studies for his citizenship exam, his obsession to pass takes him on a fantastical odyssey through U.S. history guided by a handful of unsung citizens who made courageous choices in some of the country’s toughest times. American Night: The Ballad of Juan José is a provocative, irreverent, and hilarious mix of past and present, stereotype and truth.

“Fast-paced, gleeful, and sly” (Los Angeles Times), American Night is a new play by writer and performer Richard Montoya. With Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza, he co-founded Culture Clash, the country’s most popular Chicano/Latino performance troupe, in 1984. Culture Clash in AmeriCCa played at Yale Rep in 2003.
