About...Productions "They Shoot Mexicans, Don't They?" tells the fictional story of a New York producer who in 1927 plans to make a silent movie of The Mission Play. Blending comedy and drama, the show explores the historic encounter between early Hollywood and Latino culture, and includes original and period music written and interpreted by members of Quetzal.
A site-specific remount of the production is scheduled for May 2017, in partnership with the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse as part of the event series "The Latin Wave: Exploring Myth, Illusion, and Cultural Appropriation."
Opened in 1927, The San Gabriel Mission Playhouse is a magnificent theater built for "The Mission Play" that ran for over 3,000 performances to 2.5 million people.
