Los Angeles has a homegrown theater genre with social misfits and counterculture aplenty that evokes the environment of Dust Bowl-era carnivals. We look at Lucha Vavoom, which the LA Times calls "a mash-up of Mexican lucha libre wrestling, burlesque striptease and post-punk vaudeville."

Guest:

Rita D’Albert, producer at Lucha VaVoom. She has been making alternative theater for a decade. She is also an actor, dancer, and former guitarist with the all-female rock band The Pandoras.
